Take-Back Programs

Check back often – electronics recycling is becoming more available all the time and we try to keep this page updated with current programs.

Manufacturers and retailers describe their recycling activities on their websites. The best way to know if a manufacturer offers recycling is to contact them directly. Some will charge a processing fee, and some restrict the brands that they will accept.

Check out MRM to find out which manufacturers are creating a free take-back network across the U.S.
