When a product reaches the end of its life, there has to be a sound and reliable way to take care of it. And for our end users it has to be easy.
Product take-back and recycling is vital for us – we take responsibility for our own products by offering our own take-back solutions as well as cooperating with the industry. By providing locations and information about recycling, we want to make it easy for everyone to make good choices which will benefit the environment. For information about your closest collection point, please visit www.sonymobile.com/recycle
We guarantee that all phones returned to our collection points will be recycled in an environmentally sound way:
- Landfill waste from our recycling process is kept to an absolute minimum
- The vast majority of the material from recycling is used again as recovered parts, secondary raw material or energy.
- Remaining materials will be disposed of in an environmentally conscious manner in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
Where our collection points are not available locally, we support our consumers by directing them to industry, regional or commercial recycling programmes where available.
