The Kodak Trade-In and Recycling Program also accepts accessories such as lenses and flashes, and takes all brands.
Consumers use the program website to provide information on the products they wish to recycle. They then receive an instant quote and a pre-paid shipping label.
If the trade-in is accepted, customers receive a check as well as a discount offer from the online Kodak Store. For products with no resale value, Kodak provides the website user with responsible recycling options.
The program’s fulfillment partner is Smash Direct, an online trade-in program provider.
“Our Trade-In and Recycling program is another example of Kodak’s ongoing commitment to sustainability in our operations, and to helping consumers be more sustainable in their own lives,” said Pradeep Jotwani, president of the consumer digital imaging group and chief marketing officer at Eastman Kodak. Kodak’s other sustainability commitments include Energy Star qualified printers and digital frames, recyclable ink cartridges and papers sourced according to sustainable forestry initiatives.
Since 2002, Kodak has reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 1.5 million tons, or 49 percent, closing in on its goal for a 50 percent reduction by the end of 2012.
Recently, Toshiba America Business Solutions announced that its recycling program for ink cartridges, toner bottles, drum units and similar items will start taking items of any make.
