Starting on September 15, Sony Corporation will accept its products at 75 recycling stations around the USA, thanks to a partnership with Waste Management Incorporated. The recycling drop-off centers will accept any Sony or Sony Ericsson-branded gadgets for free, and other brands for a fee. The 75 stations are spread unevenly over the country, with 17 stations in California and 19 in Minnesota but none in 32 states. Eight states, including New York, have only one station each. Sony and Waste Management plan to double the number of drop-off centers within a year, with the aim of having at least one in every state and the ultimate goal of having a center within 20 miles of 95% of the U.S. population. In the meantime, the only option is to pay for shipment of used Sony products to some of the recycling locations.
