Saw this on Amazon and thought it was great news.http://www.amazon.com/gp/blog/post/PLNK3OBANG5YSD058Going Postal on E-waste by AmazonGreen Scene at 9:48 AM PDT, March 19, 2008 We found this in the Environmental Leader daily: "The U.S. Postal Service has launched a pilot program that lets customers recycle small electronics (PDAs, Blackberries, digital cameras, iPods and MP3 players) and inkjet cartridges by mailing them free of charge.The pilot is set for 10 areas across the country, including Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles and San Diego, but could become a national program this fall if the pilot program proves successful."The free, postage-paid Mail Back envelopes can be found on displays in Post Office lobbies. There is no limit to the number of envelopes customers may take.The company that won the contract to handle the recycling is Clover Technologies Group--a company that recycles, remanufactures and remarkets inkjet cartridges, laser cartridges and small electronics.Click here to see the original press release on usps.com, and check out the .pdf of the release here.Quite selfishly, I'm hoping this program is also piloted in Seattle ... time to go to the post office.
