The U.S. Postal Service has launched a pilot program in 1,500 post offices throughout the country that will allow customers to recycle small electronics and printer cartridges by mailing them for free.

Ottawa, Ill.-based Clover Technologies Group, which remanufactures and remarkets inkjet cartridges, laser cartridges and small electronics, will pay for the postage. If an item cannot be reused or refurbished, its parts will be used for other items or further broken down to be recycled. The pilot will take place in several cities across the country, including Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore and San Diego.

“As one of the nation's leading corporate citizens, the Postal Service is committed to environmental stewardship,” said Anita Bizzotto, chief marketing officer and executive vice president for the Postal Service, in a press release. “This program is one more way the Postal Service is empowering consumers to go green.”
