The USPS announced that it will be offering free electronics recycling via a mail in service. The program has been launched in 1,500 post offices across the country as a pilot program to try and get consumers to recycle electronics and ink cartridges rather than throwing them into landfills.

The program is called “Mail Back” and allows people to send back all sorts of items including BlackBerry’s, MP3 players, ink cartridges, PDAs, digital cameras and other items with no postage fees. Postage fees are covered by Clover Technologies Group who receives the returned electronics and gear and recycles the products.
Clover says it has a zero waste police so every bit of every item sent in is recycled in some way. That policy is what won the contract with the USPs for Clover over the other 19 companies that were interested in the program.
