Nov. 15th Is America Recycles Day

America Recycles Day is November 15th

America Recycles Day is November 15th

I received an email from Sony today that reminded me that November 15th is America Recycles Day. If you have an obsolete digital camera or any other electronics sitting in a pile on your desk or in your garage, this is an excellent opportunity to take care of it without just adding to a landfill.

Here’s a link to the website.

Also, as I mentioned I received an email from Sony detailing some of their involvement in the program. They are sponsoring 4 drop-off locations around the country and they are offering a chance to win a new Sony DSC-HX300 Cyber-shot digital camera. Here are the details:

You can always tell when it is time – missing buttons, won’t turn on, stacked in the corner of the garage or closest…you know, an abandoned electronic.  It’s time to give that thing a whole new lease on life (and you some shelf space back), bring it to America Recycles Day at Sony!

Also, participating Sony locations are hosting an opportunity to win a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera (model DSC-HX300), a high-performance camera made using Sony’s recycled plastic (SoRPlas).

Recyclable household consumer electronic items, such as all brands of televisions, computer monitors/displays, stereos, computers, cell phones, etc. will be accepted.

The following cannot be accepted: batteries, microwaves, humidifiers, thermometers, air conditioners, smoke/fire alarms/detectors and large household appliances, such as dishwashers, refrigerators and washer/dryers.
