IRVINE, Calif., November 5, 2009 — In its continuing effort to lessen its impact on the environment, conserve natural resources and be socially responsible, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America’s Presentation Products Division is announcing a recycling program for projectors.
Projector owners can now have peace of mind when replacing and disposing of their older projectors. Customers who purchase a new Mitsubishi projector can access the company’s new recycling program online. The program is based on a one-to-one replacement rate: For example, if an end-user purchases five new Mitsubishi projectors, they will be eligible to recycle up to five projectors of any size from any manufacturer.
“Mitsubishi Electric is committed to being as environmentally friendly as possible, and this program is just one of several steps we are taking to be ‘green’ in every way we can,” said James Chan, senior director, product marketing, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America’s Presentation Products Division. “We understand the impact that some high-tech products can have on the environment, and our new recycling program lets us do our part to help keep our planet healthy.”
The program starts with a visit to http://mitsubishirecycle.tradeups.com where users input information about their new Mitsubishi projector purchase as well as the projector(s) to be recycled, including manufacturer and model number. Once the purchase is verified, the customer will receive a kit with appropriate recycling shipping information. Once the old projector is shipped by the customer to the recycling center, Mitsubishi takes over and will be responsible for the rest, including the processing fees for material breakdown and recycling.
“We are all concerned about the environment, and many communities still don’t have recycling programs for tech products,” added Chan. “Our customers want to be sure that their old projectors are being responsibly disposed of, and we’re glad they can rely on us to take care of this important responsibility.”
