Shortly after establishing an e-scrap collection partnership, Samsung and the repair-focused franchise uBreakiFix have launched a recycling awareness campaign.
The partners kicked-off the six-week Erase E-Waste Challenge in the run-up to Earth Day, April 22.
In December, the companies announced the partnership through which Samsung supports collection of e-scrap of any brand at uBreakiFix U.S. locations, of which there are now 570. The devices are sent to a Samsung recycling partner certified to the e-Stewards standard.
The program accepts end-of-life phones, tablets, computers, printers, game consoles, wearables and more. TVs are excluded.
