Erase E-Waste with uBreakiFix & Samsung

 

Want to save storage space AND the environment? 

 

This spring, uBreakiFix has teamed up with Samsung to launch the Erase E-Waste Challenge, a 6-week initiative encouraging people to recycle their old tech by Earth Day. To participate, bring your outdated or unwanted electronics to your local uBreakiFix and we’ll responsibly recycle them for free. It’s that easy. 

 

At uBreakiFix, we help people get the most out of their devices by making the repair experience as convenient and seamless as possible. Now, we’re making tech recycling just as easy with the help of our partners at Samsung. For more information about Samsung’s broader recycling efforts, visit Samsung.com/recycling.

 

If you’ve got ancient tech cluttering up your closet, just drop it off at any of our 570+ US locations. We’ll take care of the rest.

Get a jump-start on giving back to the planet this spring. Reduce, reuse, and recycle with Samsung and uBreakiFix!
