USPS Sees Green: Electronics Recycling Pilot
Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, the United States Postal Service has launched a pilot recycling program that will allow owners to safely dispose used, broken or obsolete electronic items through the mail.
The list includes "inkjet cartridges, PDAs, Blackberries, digital cameras, iPods and MP3 players" and can be shipped by using postage paid envelopes found in post office locations. The service will be available in several major cities but could expand nationwide depending upon it's success.
Nikonians interested in this program should ensure that their personal data is removed before recycling any devices. A good resource to start with is this page at MIT, as well as the device maker's support channels.
