Sprint CEO Brags on E-Waste Efforts

August 22, 2011

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse got a chance to pat himself on the back Monday on the White House blog - praising his company's efforts, with Dell and Sony, to cut what he calls E-waste. Hesse says only about 10 percent of cellphones are ever recycled.

"Sprint's Electronics Stewardship Policy sets aggressive e-waste goals, including the collection of nine phones for reuse or recycling for every 10 sold by 2017," Hesse writes on the blog.

"To date, Sprint has collected more than 25 million mobile phones-- keeping them out of landfills, helping to conserve resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and preventing air and water pollution."
