Samsung Announces Recycling Program
Samsung Electronics America on Thursday announced the launch of a major new recycling initiative in all 50 U.S. states, in which consumers can drop off Samsung products at numerous collection sites. The program, called Samsung Recycling Direct, is set to begin Oct. 1.
The program will be carried out by Samsung contracting directly with recycling companies.
“As a global enterprise, we have worked diligently to put our environmental responsibility philosophy into practice across our worldwide operations, among our suppliers and partners, and within our local communities,” Samsung Electronics America CEO DJ Oh said as part of the announcement. “Today we are very pleased to once again affirm those philosophies by announcing that our Samsung Recycling Direct 50-state take-back and recycling commitment extends across all Samsung-branded consumer electronics sold in the United States.”
