USPS Postal News: Free Recycling Through the Mail:
Postage is paid for by Clover Technologies Group, a nationally recognized company that recycles, remanufactures and remarkets inkjet cartridges, laser cartridges and small electronics. If the electronic item or cartridges cannot be refurbished and resold, its component parts are reused to refurbish other items, or the parts are broken down further and the materials are recycled. Clover Technologies Group has a zero waste to landfill policy: it does everything it can to avoid contributing any materials to the nations landfills.
The really important part of this is that Chicago is one of the test cities. But first I want to see if I can get my busted electronics (Sony Ericsson v505 with a dead screen, iPod Photo 60GB with a dead harddrive) fixed and thus useful again, as I’d rather give away working toys to family or for that matter continue to use them myself.
