Harris Teeter has joined forced with MyBoneYard to create an online program enabling customers to recycle electronics simply and safely — and make money while doing it. The Web site, https://harristeeter.myboneyard.com/, which went live on April 22, allows shoppers to donate individual items for recycling, order collection materials for a one-time collection event or start a recycling fundraising program to support local schools.
Customers with electronic devices to be recycled can click on the “About Us” section of the site, visit the Sustainability page and click on the Engaged Recycling link to be connected to the right page. After supplying the make, model and overall condition of the item to be recycled and answering a few easy questions, they will then receive an estimated amount for the donation. The reward comes in the form of Harris Teeter gift cards, or the dollar amount can be donated to any school participating in the Southeast regional retailer’s “Together in Education” fundraising program.
Matthews, N.C.-based Harris Teeter will also provide customers with a prepaid shipping label and voucher to send in their electronic device at no cost. The types of electronic items that can be recycled include music players, PC systems, cell phones, video cameras, laptops, game systems, flat-panel monitors, cell phones and digital cameras.
The grocer, which has about 21,000 employees at 192 stores in eight states, has developed a range of sustainability guidelines, from packaging and store design to logistics and distribution, and has also implemented recycling initiatives for shoppers.
