CES 2008: Electronics Giants Say: Recycle!


Posted January 7, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Panasonic, Sharp and Toshiba announced at CES that they've formed an organization to collect and recycle their products. Damn hippies!

The electronic giants' new baby is called the Electronics Manufacturers Recycling Management Company and was formed in response to new laws sprouting all over the country that govern the disposal of electronics.

"We believe that forming an independent company to manage collective electronic recycling programs is the best way to achieve the economies of scale and efficiencies necessary to create a sustainable recycling system for used electronics products." said David Thompson, MRM President. "MRM has already entered into collection and recycling agreements with Hitachi Electronics, JVC, Mitsubishi, Philips, Pioneer, Sanyo and Olevia brand maker Syntax-Brillian, and looks forward to working with other manufacturers going forward."
