With approximately 4,700 small-format stores in strip malls and shopping centers across the U.S. and in Mexico, RadioShack combines the purchasing power of a national retailer with the personal touch of a neighborhood merchant. Our corporate citizenship activities reflect this through programs that support specific endeavors in the communities where we live and work by promoting global issues, such as emergency response, technology education, and environmental responsibility, stewardship and compliance.
Reusing & Recycling
RadioShack is committed to operating in a way that's environmentally responsible — from prudent sourcing and recycling to facilitating proper disposal of used electronics. We promote these initiatives through our Trade & Save Program, which enables consumers to exchange working electronics for a credit or upgrade to new products, as well as our in-store recycling programs, which encourage consumers to bring their used rechargeable batteries and cellphones to a RadioShack location (in the contiguous United States) for free, responsible recycling. For more information on Trade & Save, click here. To find out more about our rechargeable battery and cellphone recycling programs, click here.
Supporting Recovery Efforts
RadioShack has long been a leader in carrying weather radios, portable power, surge protectors and other technology that helps our neighbors stay safe and connected in emergencies. We also show this commitment by helping our communities recover following natural disasters. RadioShack collected donations benefiting the American Red Cross through our point-of-sale system following devastating storms in Texas and Oklahoma. During the summer of 2013, the company collected more than $450,000 to aid in recovery in affected communities. The company also contributed to the American Red Cross following Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
Upholding Our Responsibility
We are committed to compliance with all federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations that apply to our business, and our vendors and business partners must agree to comply with the same standards.
