What’s better than free recycling? Free recycling and the opportunity to win great prizes the more you do it! From now through August 31, 2011 Green Citizen (http://www.greencitizen.com) invites California residents to drop off their unwanted or obsolete electronics for responsible recycling at no cost at its four San Francisco Bay Area eco-centers. For every five qualifying items recycled and/or GreenCitizen repair or data security service used, consumers are entered to win a new iPad 2.
“With this program, GreenCitizen hopes to turn what might be considered a chore into a fun and potentially rewarding activity. It’s something people should be doing anyway, this just gives them even more incentive,” says James Kao, Founder and CEO. “Repair, which is even better for the planet, qualifies too. Every month, we hope to offer a hot, new electronic item as a prize.”
GreenCitizen (http://www.greencitizen.com) is a socially and environmentally responsible company dedicated to helping consumers and businesses reduce their environmental footprint through proper disposal management of their unwanted or obsolete electronics. GreenCitizen achieves this through repair services (including computer and iPhone repair) that keep items out of the waste stream, closed loop reuse and donation, and convenient drop-off and responsible recycling for end-of-life electronics that is fully accountable all the way through de-manufacturing.
Qualifying items for recycling rewards are desktop and laptop computers, televisions, monitors and servers. Consumers will also receive credits for any repair or upgrade service including iPhone repair, computer or laptop repair, in-store PC virus and spyware removal, data migration and hardware or software installation as well as security services such as hard disk destruction, media destruction, copier destruction and cellphone and PDA erasure.
In addition to consumer drop-offs, GreenCitizen offers a full range of business solutions including professional pickup, inventory, data destruction and safe electronics disposal, and an in-building recycling kiosk program offering small-scale electronics recycling for employees, customers or building tenants.
