The Post Office Is Helping You Recycle

The U.S. Post Office is providing free envelopes for sending away your old gadgets to a recycler – without having to pay for postage!Launched in 1,500 Post Offices in major cities the new “Mail Back” program sends your electronic junk to Clover Technologies Group, a company that recycles the bits into new bytes. If the electronic item or cartridges cannot be refurbished and resold, its component parts are reused, or the parts are broken down further and the materials are recycled. Clover has a “zero waste to landfill” policy doing everything it can to avoid contributing any materials to the nation’s landfills. Hey it's nice to know our Government is trying to actually help us recycle!
