Time: 2014-11-03 11:16:37     Author: Administrator

Vietnam has made a policy for manufacturers to set up recall centres, which will collect discarded electronics products such as compact lamps, fluorescent lamps, computers, monitors, CPUs, printers, fax machines, scanners, cameras, camcorders, mobile phones, tablets, and DVDs. Beginning in early 2015, all residents in Vietnam will be able to bring their discarded electronic products to disposal points set up by manufacturers and importers, according to a newly released government decision. Under Decision No 50, the electronic products will be given to manufacturers and importers at the waste-recall disposal centers, and the businesses will then take them away for recycling or proper disposal. From 2016, there will be recall centers to collect photocopiers, televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners and washing machines.
