A remote control is one of those pesky small electronic accessories that seems difficult to recycle. While not as well-known a polluter as a television or cell phone, a remote control still contains plastics and toxic parts that should not end up in a landfill. Luckily, there are some electronics companies and recyclers dedicated to making sure that doesn't happen. Be sure you find one of them and recycle that remote.
