Computing giant Lenovo (LNVGY) has announced a free computer recycling service in mainland China.
Lenovo's recycling service is available to users of Lenovo brand laptop computers, desktop computers and servers, as well as ThinkPad laptops and ThinkCenter desktop computers.
Lenovo says that both business and individual clients can send those types of computers to Lenovo's recycling sites across the country, or they can ask Lenovo's staff to come fetch the devices from their homes or offices. Lenovo will entrust a third party to process and dispose of these collected computers according to relevant Chinese laws and environmental rules, and it will undertake all the relevant cost involved during this process.
Chen Shaopeng, senior vice president of Lenovo Group, says that the free recycling service they plan in China is another major step that they have made in environmental protection and it shows Lenovo's responsible attitude towards the society and environment.
Free recycling services have drawn great attention from the world's PC leaders, and Dell has already initiated a free recycling service in China for its customers.
