In achieving conformance with IEEE 1680.1 (Section 4.6.1.1) standard, M&A provides a free take-back service for our branded products. We have established our service with FMI Recycling, and provide guidance on the take-back or recycling service to our customers. FMI Recycling is R2 Certified, and thus meets the requirements of the U.S. EPA ‘Plug-In to eCycling: Guidelines for Materials Management’.

Overview of legislation

House Bill 2714 was signed into law and goes into effect on September 1, 2009. The law requires manufacturers to provide Texas household consumers with free and reasonably convenient collection, re-use and recycling opportunities for certain devices.

Legislated Products

The following devices are covered under the Texas Law:

  • Monitors
  • Desktop computers
  • Notebook computers and
  • Their accompanying keyboard and mouse

Manufacturers are required to offer this collection and recycling only for computer equipment purchased primarily for personal or home-business use. By law, you will be responsible for any confidential information left on the computer equipment.

The M&A Technology Computer Equipment Recycling Program

M&A Technology has contracted with FMI Recycling Technologies and Asset Management and Services, Inc., both Texas Recyclers to establish the M&A Recycling Program. These certified equipment recyclers act as the collection and recycling contractors for the Program. The Program provides consumers with a free and convenient way of recycling their used, unwanted, obsolete or damaged M&A products by dropping them off at the designated recycling centers.

FMI Recycling Technologies and Asset Management & Services currently have designated drop-off sites in Dallas and Houston, where M&A Sales Offices are also located.

Program Coverage

Products covered by the M&A Technology Recycling Program include M&A Technology and Manda brands of desktop computers, monitors, notebooks, accessories (keyboards/mice) associated with those products, and rechargeable (PC Companion) batteries. Other brands will be accepted but a fee may be charged by Waste Management for non-M&A brands.
