Smiles for our consumers

Post-sales recycling program

Nintendo of America offers consumers, both in the U.S. and Canada, recycling for any of their video game products (not just Nintendo products) through our Take Back Program.

Under this program, Nintendo of America will supply postage, along with instructions on how to send video game products to us for R2-certified* recycling. Upon request, we will also provide fully recyclable packaging for the consumer. Our recycling partners are all contractually required to have R2 certification to ensure that the materials are handled properly and securely. 

*Responsible Recycling is a standard for recycling electronics that is practiced throughout North and South America. The official name is Responsible Recycling ("R2") Practices for Use in Accredited Certification Programs for Electronics Recyclers.
