[GreenYes] Re: Recycling by mail


Title: [GreenYes] Re: Recycling by mail


Many electronic retailers and manufacturers offer take back programs
through mail. You can find brief info and links to programs for
retailers at

ck.html or manufacturers at

akeback.html.

Also, in 2003, Snohomish County in Washington State published a report
on manufacturer mail back programs available at:
