LG Electronics Inc, a Korea-based company that manufactures electronics and telecommunication products, has entered into a partnership with Waste Management Inc (NYSE:WM)(WM) and has announced a recycling programme for hotel operators to responsibly dispose of outdated television sets and computer monitors.

In 2010 alone, hundreds of hotels are expected to upgrade thousands of rooms with energy-efficient LG flat-panel digital TVs, which will displace older analogue picture tube TVs. To support this growing trend, the company has offered environmentally conscious hotel, motel and resort operators a convenient, cost-effective opportunity for recycling obsolete hotel TVs.

Under this new programme planned for launch in 2010, the company will facilitate the recycling process through WM's subsidiary WM Recycle America LLC.

The company president for a subsidiary, LG Electronics USA, Teddy Hwang, said, 'This program will encourage hotel operators to dispose of outdated electronics in an environmentally responsible manner.'
