Sony business operations rely on a healthy natural environment. To help promote fulfilling lifestyles today and tomorrow, and achieve a zero environmental footprint by the year 2050.

Responsible manufacturers must also consider what happens to products after use. Designing for recycle is only the start of our post-consumer responsibility, which extends to the local recycling programs we have established to encourage take-back and recycling of end-of-life products.

Sony has partnered with ERI to offer responsible recycling nationwide. Search above to find a drop off location where you can responsibly recycle your unwanted electronics, rechargeable batteries, or media.

If you can’t find an option, look for an upcoming recycling event or mail your Sony branded product to us for responsible recycling at no cost.

Sony encourages consumers to take additional steps to destroy all personal and confidential data contained on computers, data storage devices, and hard drives. While Sony’s partner, ERI, provides data destruction on all products received, it is always a good idea for consumers to consider removing or wiping their data prior to return.

Destroy All Personal & Confidential Data

The following are some options for destroying data on your device:

  • Consult your product’s user manual or manufacturer’s website for information on factory reset buttons or reconfiguration menus.
  • Utilize software programs for data erasure. Examples include, but are not limited to DBAN or Eraser.
