A pilot program launched by the US Postal Service allows consumers to recycle small electronic appliances and ink cartridges through the mail for free.
The “mail back” program provides free envelopes to help consumers discard broken or obsolete electronics in an environmentally responsible way. The pilot program is only available in 10 areas but could go public if it is successful.
The postage is paid for by Clover Technologies Group, a nationally recognized company that recycles, remanufactures and remarkets inkjet and toner cartridges.
Since the program is not in my area I am unsure of which small appliances they will take. I do know that while the USPS says it will take ipods; it is better to recycle them at the Apple store and get 10% off your next purchase.
