DHL secures green scheme
Australia - DHL will collect and recycle television and computers, the first company to do so under Australia’s National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme.
The scheme, an Australian, Federal, state and territory government industry initiative, aims to reduce the number of electronics products like televisions and computer equipment, ending up in landfill. It also looks to increase recycling rate for these products from 17% in 2010 to 80% by 2021.
The logistics company will look to work with local councils and provide a comprehensive solution for the collecting and recycling of electronic products for product importers and local manufacturers.
"The approval of DHL is an important next step for the industry-run National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme," Don Farrell, senator and parliamentary secretary for Sustainability and Urban Water, said.
He added that organisations need to demonstrate that they can meet the scheme's strict operating criteria for the scheme's success.
Terry Ryan, CEO of DHL Supply Chain in South Pacific, said the company aims to minimise the impact of the company's business on the environment with their global GoGreen programme.
