Battery Recycling

Lenovo Italy has joined RAECYCLE (http://www.raecycle.eu) consortium to collect and treat batteries and accumulators. Owners or last users of spent batteries and accumulators shall not dispose them as unsorted municipal waste, but use the collection framework available to them for their return. Owners should contact their local municipality, retail location where batteries are sold to identify collection points.

WEEE User Information

Users of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) with the WEEE marking per Annex IV of the WEEE Directive must not dispose of end of life EEE as unsorted municipal waste, but use the collection framework available to them for the return, recycle, recovery of WEEE and minimize any potential effects of EEE on the environment and human health due to the presence of hazardous substances.

WEEE From Private Households (Consumers)

Lenovo has joined RAECYCLE consortia to collect and treat electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) from private households. Consumers will need to contact their local municipality or visit the consortia website (http://www.raecycle.eu) to identify local collection points.

WEEE From Other Than Private Households (Businesses)

When electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) will be part of a 1:1 replacement sale, businesses should complete and submit a form at the EARN website (http://www.earn-service.com/lenovo/) to make arrangements for collection and treatment of WEEE or contact their usual commercial representative at Lenovo. Otherwise, businesses should consider the following Asset Recovery Solutions offering.

Asset recovery services

Lenovo offers Asset Recovery Services (ARS) to business customers to help manage their end-of-life technology equipment by providing PC take-back, data destruction, refurbishment and recycling. Lenovo also offers additional services including inventory, value assessment, on-site de-installation and data encryption. This service gives customers an end-to-end solution from Lenovo from the point of computer purchase to take-back and disposal. Lenovo's expertise in managing the end-of-life computers can help customers eliminate the time and expense of managing the disposal of surplus or replaced equipment themselves. Additionally upon request, Lenovo can facilitate donation of the old computers or can help customers receive cash back for them.

Businesses interested in using these services should contact their local Lenovo Sales Representative or visit http://www.lenovo.com/services_warranty/Uk/en/asset_recovery.html.
