I want to recycle

Sony has partnered with ERI to offer their Take Back and Recycling Program nationwide.

You can search above to find a drop off location where you can responsibly recycle your unwanted electronics, as well as opportunities for packaging, batteries, and media recycling.

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.

See more about Sony’s participation in EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management Program, specific state required information, guidance on erasing the data on your devices, and more information about Sony and ERI’s commitment to responsible management of electronics.

Sony is an e-Stewards Enterprise, which demonstrates our commitment to utilize e-Stewards, 3rd party certified, recyclers. 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. ERI is committed to providing safeguards for our clients, our employees, and the environment.

We are, in fact, the first company in the world to hold NAID AAA, and e-Stewards certifications. What that means to you is that we are certified at the highest level possible for data destruction, sanitization and environmentally responsible recycling. It also means that we are subject to periodic and unannounced audits by third-parties and clients totaling over 60 audits per year across our eight facilities.
