For large enterprise customers, Lenovo's Asset Recovery Service provides solutions for larger quantities of equipment from any manufacturer, including Lenovo. Please note: to recycle a battery only, please see Lenovo’s U.S. recycling page for details on how to access the "Call2Recycle" program for recycling rechargeable notebook batteries.

Lenovo's consumer offering provides a FREE recycling solution (shipping included) for all Lenovo, Medion, Iomega, and LenovoEMC branded products and select IBM branded products[1], including system units, monitors, keyboards, mice, network attached storage devices, and Medion branded televisions. The program offers convenient options for recycling Lenovo products, including drop off at thousands of FedEx locations nationwide. Customers simply prepare the product for shipment and step through the instructions on the RLGA webpage[3] which includes detailed instructions regarding how to request a free prepaid label and information on how to find your nearest drop off location.

Lenovo and its recycling partners are not responsible for information left on equipment returned to Lenovo or its partners for recycling. Lenovo 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.
