Canon offers a nationwide take-back service for proper end-of-life management of EPEAT-registered and Non-EPEAT registered products via Canon Virginia Inc. (CVI), an R2 Certified Electronics Recycler.
Canon also offers a take-back program for the following programs managed by either Canon or a Canon-authorized agent:
Customers with products and components that have reached end-of life (e-waste) are encouraged to recycle locally through an R2-certified electronics recycler. However, whenever local recycling via a R2 certified electronics recycler is not feasible, customers may utilize Canon’s Commercial E-Waste Take-back Program.
Via this program, all EPEAT and non-EPEAT registered Canon-branded products, including residual equipment and components derived from those products, may be recycled via CVI’s R2 certified recycling facility.
To utilize this program, customers, including dealers, may send shipments of end-of-life products to the following address:
While shipping arrangements and expenses are the customer’s responsibility, Canon will assume the responsibility and cost for processing upon arrival to the CVI R2 certified recycling facility.
Similar to the end-of-life disposal of institutional products, consumers and authorized service facilities (ASF’s) may send end-of-life Canon-branded consumer products, as well as any residual parts and components derived from such products to our CVI R2 recycling facility in Virginia. While the cost of recycling will be covered by Canon USA, consumers and ASF’s will only incur a low, flat fee to cover shipping costs to CVI.
Additionally, Canon has a National Consumer Products Recycling Program for all Canon branded consumer that provides for recycling at a certified recycling facility. For more information, click the link below.
