The growth of Toshiba's free recycling program is a reflection of the company's dedication to promoting responsible disposal of hazardous waste

"The growth of Toshiba's free recycling program is a reflection of the company's dedication to promoting responsible disposal of hazardous waste," said Jeff Barney, general manager and vice president, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. "Recycling items regardless of the manufacturer is a natural step for Toshiba, considering the value we place on environmental responsibility."

Toshiba now accepts e-waste with no market value for recycling without requiring the consumer to purchase a Toshiba product. Qualifying items include laptops, Tablet PCs, monitors, projectors, cameras, camcorders, servers, home audio receivers, cell phones, car audio, home electronics, auto electronics, mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, game systems and GPS navigation systems.

To provide customers that have working products with value, Toshiba offers users the option of trading in their used products for cash with no obligation to purchase a Toshiba product. Users can determine the trade-in value of old consumer electronics products by visiting Toshiba's product value estimator at http://toshiba.com/recycle.

A responsible corporate citizen, Toshiba's Digital Products Division along with Toshiba America has set a goal of recycling 12 million pounds of e-waste in the U.S. by 2010. To achieve this goal, Toshiba has partnered with organizations and government entities to provide convenient recycling opportunities for customers and to ensure as many electronic products as possible are recycled or reused. For products that cannot be reused or recycled, Toshiba will dispose of the products responsibly.
