Lexmark has joined the Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform (ANZRP), as a founding member, in order to help reduce the environmental impact of printer and multifunction printer (MFP) hardware in Australia.
As a member of ANZRP, Lexmark will be compliant with the federal government’s new National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme, which began this month. The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme involves a combination of government regulation and industry action to take responsibility for the collection and recycling of waste televisions, computers, printers and computer products. Consumers and small businesses will be able to drop these items, free of charge, at designated access points.
Carmel Mosser, General Manager, Lexmark Australia and New Zealand, said: “We are proud to be a founding member of ANZRP because we take very seriously our commitment to sustainability and the environment. The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme is just another example of that commitment and we look forward to working with ANZRP and alongside our partners and industry peers to continue this journey.”
