Members of the Electronics TakeBack Coalition and Clean Water Action went to Panasonic’s Secaucus headquarters yesterday dressed as “TV Zombies.” They wanted the company to commit to taking back its old TVs for recycling — nationally — in advance of the broadcasting switch to digital in February, which will render many old TVs obsolete. Panasonic said yesterday that it is creating a national recycling program, along with Sharp and Toshiba; there will be drop-off locations in 10 states, including New Jersey, starting next week, and more locations will be added over the next three years.
