Nxtcycle announces 2002 program results. (Electronics Recycling).

Nxtcycle, a leading recycler of electronic products, has released results for its 2002 Electronics Recycling Shared Responsibility[TM] Program.

The program, which was initiated in August 2002 with electronics manufacturers Panasonic, Sharp and Sony, brings consumers, municipalities, retailers and electronics manufacturers together to properly manage, reuse and process obsolete or unwanted consumer electronics. The program emphasizes proper management of televisions, computers and computer monitors and is underwritten by the participating manufacturers.

Approximately 38,500 devices containing CRTs (cathode ray tubes) were collected at 16 special event collections and at 19 permanent drop-off sites from August through December 2002.

Recognizing that numerous parties have a responsibility to properly manage end-of-life electronics products, Nxtcycle initiated the Shared Responsibility[TM] Program to facilitate cost-effective, environmentally-conscious solutions. This joint recycling effort promotes a self-sustaining model for recycling of consumer electronics, and helps keep discarded electronics products from landfills.

Phoenix-based Nxtcycle is working to add additional electronics manufacturers to the program. Additional program information and a schedule drop-off events and locations can be found on Nxtcycle's Web site at www.nxtcycle.com.
