Samsung Spain launches recycling campaign

Thursday 25 April 2019 | 11:14 CET | News
Samsung has launched an eco campaign at its Spanish stores and support centres to raise public awareness about environmental issues and encourage the recycling of used electronic goods. The initiative was launched on Earth Day 2019 (22 April) and will run until the end of May, with 30 of Samsung's premium repair centres throughout Spain collecting used phones, tablets, TVs and other appliances for safe recycling by a specialised company. Anyone who hands in an old device for recycling will receive an "eco-gift" bag, said the company.
