Skip to main content launches electronics recycling program


HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. Sears announced that it has launched a new program on that allows shoppers to turn-in used electronics, such as cell phones, cameras and MP3 players and redeem them for Sears gift cards that are valid online and in-store.

The new program is in partnership with Gazelle, which specializes in providing practical, responsible, rewarding ways for consumers to get value for used, working electronics, and gives customers the flexibility to trade-in unwanted gadgets from more than 20 product categories, including cell phones, laptops, MP3 players and digital cameras. Electronics items that no longer work will still be accepted at no cost for recycling, but consumers will not receive value for these items.


"Sears Blue Electronics Crew's trade-in program is a great option for customers who want to turn their used electronics into potential buying power, while also helping conserve the environment," said Karen Austin, president of home electronics for Sears Holdings. "We are proud that through this partnership with Gazelle, approximately 90% of the home electronics items that costumers send in are expected to be reused and the remainder will be responsibly recycled. This prevents products from ending up in landfills, making Sears a leader in eliminating e-Waste."
