WEEE Marking Notice

The WEEE marking on Lenovo products applies to all countries with WEEE and e-waste regulations (e.g., European Directive 2002/96/EC, India E-Waste Management & Handling Rules, 2011). Appliances are labeled in accordance with local regulations concerning waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). These regulations determine the framework for the return and recycling of used appliances as applicable within each geography. This label is applied to various products to indicate that the product is not to be thrown away, but rather put in the established collective systems for reclaiming these end of life products.

PC Recycling Service

Lenovo Korea has joined the Association of Electronic Environment to comply with legal extended producer responsibilities for the recycling of end of life products from consumers. Consumers can request take back and recycling of any brand PC when purchasing a new product from the seller (e.g., retailer, business partner). Otherwise, consumers can dispose of their end of life products through their local municipality at their own expense. Consumers should visit the Association of Electronic Environment website at www.aee.or.kr to obtain additional information about this program and identify collection points or contact their local municipality. LenovoEMC and Iomega network attached storage device products from household consumers may also be returned through this program.

Lenovo 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. For more information on Lenovo Asset Recovery Services (ARS) please click here.
