Mitsubishi Introduces Monitor Replacement and Recycling Program

Chicago, IL - NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display of America, Inc., announced its new Total Trade™ monitor replacement and recycling program. Designed for corporate customers, this customizable program makes it easy for companies to remove and safely dispose of their currently deployed working and non-working monitors as part of an upgrade to NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display's line of LCD and CRT monitors while lowering procurement costs and total cost of ownership.

Computer monitors rank among the largest category of electronic products being recycled, with materials such as lead and mercury typically found in CRT and LCD monitors respectively. With increasing pressure to impose legislations that require companies to be financially and environmentally responsible for their e-waste, end-of-life inventory disposal is becoming an important consideration for corporate IT decision makers when evaluating new monitor purchases. The Total Trade program is a cost-effective way for companies to manage monitor removal, and NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display assumes the responsibility of ensuring monitors are disposed not only in accordance to EPA guidelines, but also in accordance to the local laws where the customer is based.

Once the displays arrive at the trade-in facility, the products are verified as "working" or "non-working." Working trade-in units are sold at the highest available prices in the used equipment industry, and NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display will issue payment to the customer within 30 days. The customer has complete flexibility in choosing whether to apply the refund to their upgrade monitor purchase, or allocate the funds elsewhere. This refund not only provides cost savings to companies, it also helps lower the total cost of ownership of a NEC-Mitsubishi monitor upgrades.

In accordance with all EPA guidelines and local legislative requirements, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display offers one of the lowest disposal and recycling costs in the industry for non-working units. To verify that non-working units are properly disposed, the company pro-vides customers with detailed information on the disposition of every monitor that is returned.
