Samsung, in collaboration with ERI and CTA, will organize the third annual recycling event in Las Vegas ahead of CES 2020. The event, which will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. PST on January 4 at the Salvation Army at 2035 Yale Street, will provide early CES attendees a convenient way to dispose unwanted electronics in an environmentally-responsible manner.ERI, which is a leading recycler of electronic waste, will securely destroy all the data from the disposed items before recycling the e-waste. Electronic items ranging from calculators to TVs will be accepted and recycled free of charge at the event. You can find the complete list of accepted items in the image below.
“With the help of partners like ERI and CTA, we have recycled over 100 million pounds of e-waste throughout the U.S. in 2018 alone, and more than 1 billion pounds since 2008. We continue to expand programs to reach our global goal of taking back more than 15 billion pounds of electronics by 2030,” said Mark Newton, Head of Environmental, Regulatory Affairs, and Sustainability at Samsung Electronics America.“Even as tech devices use fewer materials and energy than ever, our industry remains committed to reducing our impact on the environment. CTA applauds Samsung and ERI for holding this recycling event for the city of Las Vegas, home of CES,” said Walter Alcorn, VP for environmental affairs and industry sustainability, CTA.
