Many of the sustainability challenges that we prioritize at Samsung – whether it be realizing a circular economy or optimizing energy efficiency – are enhanced through partnerships and collaborative initiatives with credible, knowledgeable, and innovative brands, environmental organizations, and industry groups. Together with these like-minded eco-conscious allies, we are putting our scale, global presence, and pioneering spirit to work on building a more sustainable and equitable future.

As part of our “Partners in Sustainability” series – this one timed to Global Recycling Day, which aims to promote the vitality of recycling across the globe – Samsung’s esteemed partner, uBreakiFix® by Asurion, shares their views on how tackling environmental challenges requires unparalleled cooperation. Working alongside partners like uBreakiFix®, Samsung is empowering consumers to have a meaningful impact on the environment.

Since 2012, we have collected and recycled over 1.2 billion pounds of e-waste in the U.S., which is like collecting 50 laptops or 500 smartphones every minute![1] With over 1,700 e-waste recycling locations, including uBreakiFix® and Asurion Tech Repair & Solutions™ stores, customers can conveniently drop off or trade in eligible devices, including cell phones, tablets, computers, printers, game consoles, DVD players, cords, and chargers. Then, with the help of our partners, the devices are refurbished. Products that cannot be repaired, or electronics scrap generated in the repair process are recycled by Samsung-authorized recycling partners following E-Stewards certification standards, designed to promote the best practices for responsible e-waste recycling. And since December 2020, Samsung and uBreakiFix® have worked together to offer in-store e-waste collection for a wide variety of electronics at all U.S. uBreakiFix® stores, at no cost to customers.

For those not ready to turn in their tech just yet, Samsung offers the #1 Service Center Network Coverage in the U.S. for mobile devices,[2] including same-day Samsung Authorized Care service support at over 750 uBreakiFix® and Asurion Tech Repair & Solutions™ locations nationwide. Visit Samsung.com for more about our commitment to responsible recycling and to take advantage of our convenient care options.
