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.

Lenovo Peru Recycling Program

Lenovo has partnered with Reverse Logistics Group Americas (RLGA), a leader in environmentally sound Product Takeback and Regulatory Compliance, to offer free recycling of Lenovo PCs, Displays, Servers and Iomega and LenovoEMC network attached storage devices.

Lenovo and its recycling partners are not responsible for information left on equipment returned to Lenovo or its partners for recycling. Lenovo recommends that this data be backed up on a storage device for transfer to new equipment. Lenovo also recommends consumers use Lenovo's Secure Data Disposal tool or one of the variety of commercially available data-erasing software applications and follow the instructions associated with the software to ensure data is removed from the machine prior to returning for recycling.
