LOS ANGELES—It was announced today that 1-800-Recycling.com, an interactive nationwide company dedicated to simplifying and enhancing the consumer recycling experience, will be powering the consumer recycling search function of TreeHugger’s recently released iPhone App.
“With recycling being such a significant part of our mission at TreeHugger”
Via its mobile App, online resource and phone service, 1-800-Recycling provides information about recycling services and facilities to anyone, anywhere by zip code. Designed to make the recycling process easy and more accessible, 1-800-Recycling.com’s extensive national database will now also be accessible via the TreeHugger app.
Since its launch in 2004, TreeHugger has fast become the nation’s leading media outlet dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream. TreeHugger provides its users and readers with an online one-stop shop for green news, solutions, and product information, publishing an up-to-the-minute blog, weekly and daily newsletters, weekly radio interviews, and regularly updated Twitter and Facebook pages. The new TreeHugger mobile app is designed to provide users with on-the-go access to such content, as well as additional resources to help enable green living.
“It is most definitely an honor and a privilege to be partnering with TreeHugger on this collaboration,” said John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International, the US’ leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and the parent company of 1-800-Recycling.com. “1-800-Recycling shares a common mission with TreeHugger — to provide our users with helpful information that ultimately enables greater accessibility to a greener life. We have long admired the TreeHugger team for their tremendous efforts bringing a message of sustainability to so many and in such a useful array of formats. Through our new relationship, we will now be able to offer users of TreeHugger’s exciting new iPhone App with a resource to enhance their green lifestyles — an easy way to recycle their unwanted items near where they live and keep them out of landfills.”
“With recycling being such a significant part of our mission at TreeHugger,” said TreeHugger’s Senior Developer, Ben Boyd, “it made sense to partner with 1-800-Recycling.com as part of our new iPhone app project. This we way our users can find responsible recyclers in their immediate areas — helping to make the recycling process fast and easy.”
The recycling search function of the TreeHugger app finds users’ current location with built-in GPS, allows them to select whatever items they wish to recycle, and then provides the locations of responsible recyclers closest to them, thanks to 1-800-Recycling.com’s extensive nationwide database of recyclers.
1-800-Recycling.com provides users with nationwide outreach to find recycling locations nearest to them (every zip code in the country is covered) for whatever it is they wish to recycle. Through its iPod App, 1-800-Recycling.com website and 1-800-Recycling phone service, users are directed to responsible recyclers of electronics, tires, oil, paint, glass, plastic, wood, mattresses, carpet, junk — almost anything that can be recycled.
