The PC 3R Promotion Association was established in May 2004, for the purpose of manufacturers and import retailers of PCs and PC displays promoting the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) based on the “Law for Promotion of Effective Utilization of Resources”. The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), Japans electronics related industry group, had been promoting the 3Rs for PCs, but in order for a number of businesses to take a primary role in the promotion of the 3Rs for PCs and to run it as a highly effective recycling system, a related division of the aforementioned association, was independently established. For this reason, the Association is now operating, a paid service for recycling PCs and displays which were not made by manufacturers and so, who undertook the collect and recycle obligation.
