Amazon supports the responsible disposal and recycling of electronics products. To encourage our customers to recycle their Amazon devices, we offer free shipping for this purpose. We also cover the costs associated with Amazon device recycling, which is performed by licensed recycling facilities. In 2015, we became an industry steward participant and financial supporter of Call2Recycle. As part of this program, customers can drop off Amazon Basics rechargeable batteries at almost 30,000 collection sites throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Additionally, the Amazon Trade-In program accepts wireless phones, Kindle e-readers, and Kindle Fire tablets that do not power on, making it easy for customers to recycle their electronics.
