Sharp Electronics Corp. established an electronics program across the United States to provide consumers with no-cost, convenient recycling of Sharp televisions and other consumer audio and video products. Beginning Jan. 15, 2009 Sharp will expand its current recycling program to 280 sites nationwide, including at least one location in all 50 states, with hundreds more sites planned over the next three years.
Sharp’s recycling program will utilize the infrastructure developed by the Electronics Manufacturers Recycling Management Company (MRM). A joint venture between Panasonic, Sharp Electronics, and Toshiba, MRM was established in September 2007 to efficiently manage collection and recycling programs for electronics manufacturers in the United States.
The program developed by MRM aims to bring the electronic product manufacturing community together into a unified voluntary national solution to address America’s e-waste recycling needs. The program will utilize the larger volumes achieved through working with other manufacturers to maximize efficient collection and recycling.
