    Electronics reuse & recycling 

    Last updated: September 2022

    If you have a product that you need to dispose of, we encourage you to do so in an environmentally friendly manner. Some older products can still be put to good use. What is old to you could be a welcome opportunity to another! Many charities, community programs and schools are in need of used electronic equipment. Consider donating or selling your used electronics to others before recycling them. Check to see if these groups accept working and/or non-working products. If your product is not working, find out if it can it be repaired to extend its life. If the answer is no, then proper recycling is your next best alternative.

    Check with your local or state organizations on the proper disposal methods or disposal restrictions in your area. Many states already have comprehensive programs for handling electronic waste that may be a convenient option for you. The correct disposal of your old product will help prevent potential negative consequences for our environment and human health. Do not dispose of your old products with your normal household waste. Consider options for Reuse of the product before recycling or disposal.


    The Consumer Electronics Associations website, www.greenergadgets.org, provides information about purchasing greener products and recycling consumer electronics. Consumers can view electronics recycling opportunities in their locations by inserting their zip code into a search function.


    Philips participates in a number of states with the MRM electronics recycling program. For further information about this program please visit www.mrmrecycling.com. You may also visit www.earth911.com for reuse and recycling opportunities in your area.
