  1. 1. ECOMOTO Takeback Motorola is committed to the safety of our people and the protection of the environment. ECOMOTO Takeback Program encourages the reuse and recycling of electronic devices to reduce the amount of e-waste going into landfills. Recycling cell phones is important…because… • Out of more than 200 million cell phones are retired in a year, only a small percentage of those are currently refurbished or recycled. • Proper recycling of cell phones can help protect the environment, helping to prevent hazardous materials like lead, mercury or cadmium from leaking into soil as well as drinking water. • Studies suggest that there will be over 500 million cell phones in drawers, closets and elsewhere. Please use the ECOMOTO Takeback bin located at Reception in our Motorola facility to drop ewaste for recycling. Authorized contractors will collect and transport these items to approved recycling facilities. Additional support materials are available at www.motorola.com/recycling
  2. 2. Green Electronic Usage Tips Reduce:  Save money and help the environment by not purchasing unnecessary personal electronics. When purchasing think of it as an investment: buy quality items and items that are compatible for upgrades or add-ons.  Take good care of electronics so they will last longer. Use stabilizers with electronic equipment to prevent damage.  Don't leave appliances in standby mode. TVs, computers, printers, fax-machines, stereos, VCD/DVD players, etc. in stand by mode, consumes as much as 10% of the total energy use in your household without you even noticing.  Buy CFC-free or Freon-free appliances.  Encourage Corporate Responsibility. Check to see if the manufacturer has a take back policy, if they don't, write to them and ask why not. Reuse and Recycle: Used electronics can often be repaired, upgraded and reused.  Find a friend or organization that can use your old electronics.  Try to sell or give used items to a repair shop, which reuses them as spare parts.  Buy recycled computer disks and rewritable CDs in recycled cases. Rewritable CDs and DVDs may be a little expensive in the short term, but the long term benefits add up.  Use refillable ink cartridges or recycle your printer cartridges. Each one of us share a responsibility to make the world a greener place to live !
