Sony expands its US product recycling programme


sony.pngSony has announced the expansion of a US recycling scheme for users of its products.

Starting in mid-September, the company will partner with Waste Management Inc, a trash-hauler company, thus expanding the number of recycling drop-off centres available to 75. They plan to double the number of centres within a year.

Any Sony or Sony Ericsson gadget will be accepted for free, and they’ll take other products for a fee. Presumably that means they’ll take twenty-year-old cassette Walkmans?

Now, how about a UK scheme?
