You can always tell when it is time - missing buttons, won't turn on, stacked in the corner of the garage or closest...you know, an abandoned electronic.  It's time to give that thing a whole new lease on life (and you some shelf space back), bring it to America Recycles Day at Sony!

Also, participating Sony locations are hosting an opportunity to win a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera (model DSC-HX300), a high-performance camera made using Sony's recycled plastic (SoRPlas).

Recyclable household consumer electronic items, such as all brands of televisions, computer monitors/displays, stereos, computers, cell phones, etc. will be accepted.

The following cannot be accepted: batteries, microwaves, humidifiers, thermometers, air conditioners, smoke/fire alarms/detectors and large household appliances, such as dishwashers, refrigerators and washer/dryers.
