A-Z Recycling Guide -- Stereo Equipment and Components
When considering recycling your electronics, it is always good practice to find out if the equipment is being recycled responsibly. The Basel Action Network provides a list of recyclers who have signed a pledge to provide environmentally and socially responsible electronics recycling. Eco-Cycle strongly encourages you to use recyclers from this list. Go to e-stewards.org/find-a-recycler to locate a recycler in your state. Ask the recycler if there is a drop-off center near you.
