MRM adds new Texas sites to its infrastructure

MRM, a provider of electronics waste recycling management services to manufacturers, announced an agreement with Goodwill Industries of Central Texas that expands MRM’s recycling infrastructure in Texas.

Under the program, end-of-life televisions from Panasonic, Sharp or Toshiba dropped off at any one of Goodwill’s 35 locations across 15 counties in central Texas will be responsibly recycled.

Products collected through Goodwill of Central Texas will be recycled by Eco-International in Houston, Texas.

MRM is open to support the recycling programs of all electronics manufacturers, and it already serves 25 manufacturers in various recycling programs. MRM also works on recycling with retailers, non-profits, governments and private waste management companies.

The program with Goodwill will be initially underwritten by Panasonic Corporation of North America, Sharp Electronics Corporation, and Toshiba America Consumer Products, LLC, and will cover Panasonic, Sharp and Toshiba branded TVs. The program is open to any electronics manufacturer seeking to provide their consumers with expanded recycling opportunities in Texas.
