Japan's Ministry of the Environment said collection of used appliances by producers and retailers grew during fiscal 2005 to 11.62 million units, Japan Economic Newswire reports. Spurred by recycling laws, recycling was up 3.6 percent for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2006, compared to 1 percent growth in the previous fiscal year.

Japan's 2001 Electric Appliance Recycling Law requires producers and retailers of air-conditioners, TVs, refrigerators, and washing machines to collect them from consumers and disassemble the appliances for recycling. Consumers pay costs associated with collection and disassembling.

In 2005, collected appliances included:

  • 1.99 million air-conditioners, an increase of 10 percent
  • 3.86 million TVs, an increase of 2 percent
  • 2.82 million refrigerators, an increase of 1 percent.
  • 2.95 million washing machines, an increase of 5 percent
