San Francisco electronics recycling effort kicks off

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the unveiling of a winter-season green recycling program at ten K-12 schools in the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD).

The program aims to broaden community awareness about responsible electronics recycling and promote environment protection consciousness, especially with SFUSD students and their parents. The electronics recycling program also invites neighborhood residents to drop off their used electronics on the assigned event date at one of the ten schools for no-charge recycling.

Funds raised through Samsung's recycling program will benefit participating schools by matching donated funds to the district's Free and Reduced Lunch program, which serves more than 50 percent of the district's 56,000 students.

Accepted items include: TVs, monitors, desktop and laptop computers, printers, keyboards, mice, radios, stereos, speakers, DVD and CD players, VCRs, MP3 players, PDAs and cell phones.
