LG's Recycling Leadership

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.
