Three Electronics Giants Start Joint Recycling Management Company

During the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Panasonic,

Sharp and Toshiba jointly announced the formation of Electronic

in the United States.

MRM will coordinate with states having already enacted recycling

legislation, and consult with other states considering enacting electronics

laws this year and beyond.

electronic recycling programs is the best way to achieve the economies

of scale and efficiencies necessary to create a sustainable recycling

system for used electronics products." said David Thompson, MRM President."
