Earth Day e-waste drive





Life’s Good Earth Day Fair E-Waste Drive at LEED Platinum LG Campus
Helps Local Residents Protect the Planet Through Responsible Recycling


ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 18, 2024 — The award-winning national electronics recycling program of LG Electronics USA is coming home next week as the LG North American Headquarters Innovation Campus hosts a free community e-waste drive, a key element the company’s 2024 Life’s Good Earth Day Fair.


While helping local residents protect the planet through responsible recycling, this event supports meeting e-waste collection and recycling goals, which LG is increasing by 12.5 percent in New Jersey this year compared to last year. Across the country, LG recycled more than 57 million pounds of e-waste in 2023.


On April 22, local residents are invited to drop off any brand of unwanted electronics products – from TVs and monitors to computers and tablets* – at the LEED Platinum-certified LG corporate innovation campus, 111 Sylvan Ave. in Englewood Cliffs, N.J. ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year LG is encouraging participants to replace their recycled electronics with ENERGY STAR certified LG TVs, monitors, soundbars and other products.


The LG Electronics Recycling Program helps keep e-waste and related toxic substances from landfills and water streams. Responsible recycling is a cornerstone of LG’s circularity initiatives, and for the New Jersey event, LG is joining forces with electronic waste solutions expert Green-chip E-Waste & ITAD Solutions,  which provides a range of IT asset disposition and e-waste services to companies, healthcare providers, government agencies and the public.


E-waste products accepted include televisions (CRT, projection and flat panel), monitors (CRT and flat panel) computers (laptops, tablets, desktops and all-in-one PCs), computer peripherals (keyboards and mice), home office equipment (printers, scanners and fax machines), video products (VCRs, DVD players and Blu-ray disc players), audio products (receivers, soundbars and speakers) and batteries.


LG Electronics Inc. is the world’s first “Global e-Stewards Enterprise.” The e-Stewards standard, developed by the Basel Action Network, is the world’s most rigorous certification program for electronics recyclers such as Greenchip. It prevents the export and dumping of toxic electronic waste in developing countries and calls for safeguards to protect private data and ensure that recycling plant workers are not exposed to toxic materials.



A fitting venue for the Earth Day community e-waste drive, the LG North American Headquarters Innovation Campus is a showcase for environmentally friendly design, having achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification, the highest-level rating that distinguishes buildings that promote employee well-being, are energy and water efficient, and preserve open space and ecosystems. The campus is one of only 10 new construction buildings in New Jersey to earn the LEED Platinum distinction.


The 350,000-square-foot building’s design has been applauded by conservation groups for protecting the iconic vistas and integrity of the nearby Palisades Park, a national natural and historic landmark. For the new corporate campus, which had a pandemic opening in 2020, LG created 50 percent more green space on the 27-acre site, maintained woodlands and wetlands and planted more than 1,500 new trees native to New Jersey.


*Items not accepted include major appliances, air conditioners, light bulbs, hazardous waste, compressed gas cylinders, medical waste and radioactive waste including smoke detectors.
