With increasing legislative pressure to figure out what to do with the huge numbers of computer displays finding their way into landfills around the nation,
NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display
has announced a new trade-in program aimed specifically at corporate customers called Total Trade. It’s a monitor replacement and recycling program that the company hopes will be a cost-effective, convenient and environmentally responsible way for businesses to upgrade their monitor systems.

Companies who take part in the Total Trade program work with an NEC-Mitsubishi account representative to determine the estimated value of their currently deployed monitors, both working and non-working. Corporate customers complete a
Total Trade Request Form, and are provided with a quote for the trade-in product within about three days.
Once the customer approves the deal, a pick-up schedule is made. The monitors arrive at the trade-in facility and verified as working or non-working. Working units are resold. NEC-Mitsubishi also assumes the responsibility of making sure the customer’s non-working monitors are recycled or disposed of properly, in accordance with EPA guidelines and local laws. The company also provides customers with detailed information on the disposition of every monitor returned.
NEC-Mitsubishi said that using the Total Trade program, they can offer an average net return of about US$35,000 for the wholesale upgrade of 2,300 monitors. They also offer options like display tear-down from end user desks, on-site asset centralization, and new display installation.
