Brother’s Product Recycling Program

Every minute, thousands of electronic products are manufactured around the country. Everyday there are hundreds of thousands of consumers who purchase new electronic products to replace their old ones. With all those products going to waste, recycling is important. We cannot just throw them away because they contain harmful substances like mercury, lithium, cadmium, PVC plastics, and many more. When electronics are not disposed properly, they can cause harm to the environment.

Brother cooperates with different states that uphold a recycling program. If you live in a participating state, you can drop off your old Brother product so that it can be recycled and disposed properly. This program is part of the company’s environmental program. Making sure that their products, even after consumers are done with them, do not cause harm to the environment.

If you have old Brother products that you are no longer using, there are many ways that you can take them off your hands. If the product is still running perfectly well, you can sell it at a low price. You can also try to donate it to charity or your local community; they might find a need for it. You can also ask about trade-in options if you are thinking of buying a new one. If it is beyond repairable, try to look for a recycling center in your community. Recycling is our simple way of helping to conserve the environment.
