OEM to provide free drop boxes for recycling printer products at designated access points.
Lexmark has announced it has joined the Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform (ANZRP) as a founding member, and will be compliant with the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme, due to begin in July 2012.
The scheme is said to involve “a combination of government regulation and industry action to take responsibility for the collection and recycling of waste televisions, computers, printers and computer products”. Drop boxes will be established at designated points to allow consumers and small business owners to drop these items free of charge for recycling.
Carmel Mosser, General Manager for Lexmark Australia and New Zealand, commented: “We are proud to be a founding member of ANZRP, because we take very seriously commitment to sustainability and the environment.
“We strive for implement and maintain industry-leading environmental practices that not only relate to our products, but to everything we do, everywhere in the world. This is reflected in the fact that we live by the philosophy of ‘Print less, save more’.”
