LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2008
CTL joins the world’s leading consumer electronics manufacturers (including Sony, Panasonic and H-P) in taking action to reduce the level of e-waste through responsible recycling.
Tomorrow at CES 2008, CTL executive vice president, Erik Stromquist —in a panel with executives of Dell, Sony, Panasonic, Hewlett-Packard and TechTurn — will introduce his firm’s innovative program for recycling of its computer and electronics. Stromquist’s talk will illustrate how electronics manufacturers can effectively and profitably manage the responsible recycling of televisions and many other types of electronic equipment.
Stromquist’s panel, entitled, Keeping CE off the Curb, will be held tomorrow, January 8, (12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, in Room N 255-257, North Hall, LVCC). In presenting details of the new recycling program, Stromquist will discuss the company’s established capability for handling e-waste. In 2004, it founded a subsidiary, Retronics, which to date, has recycled over one million pounds of e-waste, ranking it well ahead of many other industry initiatives.
“We have known that TVs, computers, monitors and other electronic equipment pose a huge problem if there aren’t strategies to keep them out of our landfills and to dispose of them responsibly. Through our recycling program, we’re demonstrating that all electronics manufacturers can and should become part of the solution.”
