AIIA member companies have for some time lobbied for a national television and computer product stewardship scheme and worked with AIIA to inform its development with Government.
The purpose of this publication is to provide examples of current business practice and arrangements for asset management and recycling of equipment from commercial IT users. All information used in this document comes from a small selection of AIIA members who are not equipment manufacturers. AIIA also sought case studies to illustrate the way these commercial arrangements are currently conducted.
AIIA believes that the national television and computer recycling scheme can complement ‘business as usual’ arrangements, especially those servicing the corporate sector. This will be achieved through asset
management, the remarketing of used product back into the Australian and overseas markets and the
recycling of End Of Life (EOL) equipment.
Importantly, a significant proportion of IT product used in the corporate sector eventually finds its way into
use by the community. Under the national scheme, this will be well catered for at the end of its useful life.
Four companies participated in interviews and provided their responses to a set of questions.
