LG Electronics sponsored events across the nation on America Recycles Day which took place on November 15. They were the only consumer electronics company to do so. LG recycles over 15% of all of their electronics products which include household appliances, computers and mobile phones. Additionally, about 11% of all LG products use recycled plastics (post-industrial plastics). LG has targeted increasing the use of recycled plastics across 25% of all products worldwide. The LG Recycling Program covers all of the LGE brands: LG, Goldstar and Zenith.
LG also provides three recycling services on their website:
Waste Management Drop-off points: The site provides a Zip Code locator for e-cycling virtually any type of consumer electronics product.
E-Waste Map: Allows consumers to select their state to identify specific cities that accommodate e-cycling sites and sponsors.
Eco-mobilization: Accelerates sustainability in corporate or high school-sponsored programs that motivate consumers to use renewable energy, educate users about the importance of sustainability and activate people to take a hands-on approach with tools such as the zero waste recycling program to reduce e-waste in landfills.
