LG Electronics USA collects 10 million pounds of e-waste in 2011

As the exclusive consumer electronics national sponsor for America Recycles Day, LG did its part by co-hosting two dozen electronics recycling events in 2011, while emphasizing the importance of replacing old electronics and appliances with Energy Star qualified products. So far this year, LG has collected more than 10 million pounds of unused and unwanted electronics products for responsible recycling.

“The LG Electronics Recycling Program provides consumers with a convenient and responsible way to dispose of used, unwanted, obsolete or damaged consumer electronics products,” said Wayne Park, president and CEO, LG Electronics USA. “After recycling their old products, consumers can save energy by upgrading to Energy Star qualified products,” Park continued, encouraging consumers to join LG in taking the “Change the World, Start with Energy Star” pledge and save energy by recycling old products.
