Not only are Sharp NEC Display Solutions’ products manufactured with the environment in mind, but its packaging is developed with some of the same guidelines in mind. One such standard is the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive.
The Packaging & Packaging Waste Directive
The Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (Directive 94/62/EC) was first issued in 1994, and an amendment making the directive even more environmentally friendly was introduced in 2004 (Directive 2004/12/EC).
The Packaging refers to any material used to contain, protect, handle, deliver and present any type of goods, from the producer or seller to the user or consumer. The Directive requires that the weight and volume of any packaging is the minimum to ensure safety and customer acceptance and certain concentration levels for lead, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and mercury in packaging or packaging components are not exceeded.
Our standards keep rising. Starting in 2009, a minimum of 60% of packaging waste must be recovered for further use or incinerated with energy recovery. Also, between 55% and 80% of all packaging waste must be recycled.
How to Recycle your NEC Packaging
To conserve natural resources and minimize land fill usage, we ask you to please recycle your monitor carton and filler materials properly. In fact, if you aren't able to use a local recycling center, NEC will recycle it for you. Simply send your empty carton and foam filler material to the following address:
