Panasonic Rolling Out Massive Electronics Recycling Program

panasonic

Recycling electronics is never easy, so it’s extremely helpful when electronics companies take it upon themselves to help out. Panasonic announced today that is creating a program in the United States to let consumers easily recycle Panasonic products free of charge. The program, which is scheduled to start November 1, is being managed by the Electronic Manufacturers Recycling Management Company—a joint venture between Panasonic, Toshiba, and Sharp.

Initially, Panasonic’s program will offer 160 drop-off locations in 10 states. Within the next 3 years, hundreds more sites will pop up in all 50 states.

In addition to its drop-off program, Panasonic also recently pledge to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 300,000 tons in the next 22 years.

With the upcoming digital TV mandate approaching, I’m sure that Panasonic’s initiative will prevent millions of analog televisions from being tossed in the dumpster.
