The U.S. EPA recently announced a partnership with Staples and the Product Stewardship Institute to test a pilot "take-back program" as a new approach for recycling used electronics. The new partnership is part of the U.S. EPA’s "Plug-In To eCycling" campaign that promotes electronics recycling by working with manufacturers and retailers. Under the partnership with Staples and the Product Stewardship Institute, specific electronics manufacturers will pay for the recycling of their name-brand products taken back to Staples. A recycling company called Envirocycle will ensure safe recycling of these products.
