Samsung RECYCLING DIRECTSM provides consumers with convenient and responsible ways to recycle retired electronic goods, including mobile phones, televisions, cameras, VCRs, computers, and monitors. To ensure socially and environmentally responsible processing of the recycled materials, Samsung RECYCLING DIRECTSM honors the Basel Action Network standards and policies. Accordingly, Samsung's recycling partners will not incinerate, send to solid waste landfill, use prison labor in the recycling process, or export toxic waste (defined in a manner consistent with the commonly accepted definition of hazardous electronic waste) to developing countries.

Like Samsung, Walmart is committed to helping its customers live a more sustainable lifestyle and believes it is important to work with responsible recyclers and challenge the industry with new ideas that will ensure an environmentally friendly future.
