DHL Supply Chain has confirmed the resigning of two clients for its TV and PC recycling services. All importers of TVs and PCs into Australia must join an approved 'co-regulator' for recycling.

Suppliers currently have the choice of DHL, E-Cycle Solutions (part of the QLS Group) and the not-for-profit ANZRP.

Teco and Kogan are the first two client announcements made by DHL for the 2014 financial year. 

“We at Teco Australia take conserving and protecting the environment very seriously and this has been a natural step forward to complement existing global strategies of our parent Teco Taiwan’s company policy." said Teco Australia business development manager Dave Gray. "DHL has provided an excellent service throughout their first year of operation and have proven they can deliver.”

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this option to the millions of customers that shop at Kogan," said Kogan CEO Ruslan Kogan. "We’ve been leading the way with a paperless office, electronic rather than printed manuals, energy efficient designs, and packaging minimisation for years. This is yet
another way we’re giving our customers the option to be environmentally friendly while enjoying the latest technology.”

Other DHL clients for the 2013 financial year included Sony Australia, Samsung and LG Electronics. Neither E-Cycle nor ANZRP has publicly announced any client re-signings.

DHL and E-Cycle have both revealed that they have met their government-assigned recycling targets for the 2013 financial year. ANZRP has made no announcement on its progress.
