BlackBerry Recycling Programs

En Español

BlackBerry is committed to preserving the environment and promoting the reuse of recycled materials derived from electronic devices and its batteries. We are pleased to participate in a green initiative that allows customers to properly recycle their BlackBerry branded end-of-life products with our recycling partners at no charge.

Electronic Recycling Program

BlackBerry works closely with the Electronic Manufacturers Recycling Management Company (MRM) to offer the Nationwide Mail Back Program, which allows customers to generate a pre-paid shipping label to return unwanted phones and tablets for recycling at no charge.

To learn more about recycling opportunities in your area, please visit the MRM webpage.


We recommend that you do the following prior to shipping/dropping off your unwanted devices. Note that BlackBerry assumes no responsibility for the loss of confidential information or personal data on equipment.

  • Back up your data
  • Remove your sim and memory cards
  • Erase your personal data by performing a Factory Data Reset.
