Sony's take back Recycling Program in the United States offers nationwide recycling of Sony products and packaging. It was the first national recycling initiative to involve both a major electronics manufacturer and a national waste management company.
Since the inception in 2007, we've strived to create convenient ways for you to trade in or recycle your unwanted products, helping the planet in the process. The following tips will tell you how to get started.
Sony says, "we make it we take it". This means we recycle any unwanted Sony product free of charge and provide a network of convenient drop off locations. Also many states have passed recycling regulations covering specific types of electronic waste. We've incorporated these into our Take Back Recycling Program. Select a state below for more information on its particular requirements:

In addition to our drop-off locations, we also make it easier for you to recycle your old rechargeable Sony batteries. Simply go to a nearest Sony store and drop it off at the Sony drop box, or visit
www.Call2Recycle.org to find the nearest drop box.
On July 20, 2011, Sony Electronics reaffirmed this commitment by partnering with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Sprint, and Dell to promote better management of discarded electronics by working solely with certified recyclers under the National Strategy for Electronics Stewardship. This year, Sony Electronics has renewed its commitment for responsible recycling of electronics by participating in the EPA Sustainable Material Management Electronics Challenge launched in September 2012.
Our partnership with the EPA and other stakeholders will help as we continue to strive for our "Road to Zero" goal of zero waste and zero environmental impact throughout the complete life cycle of all our products and related services.
