systems.
Those systems will reuse or recycle most of the materials of your end life equipment in a
sound way.
The crossed-bin symbol marked on your device invites you to use those systems.
If you need more information on the collection, reuse and recycling systems, please contact
your local or regional waste administration.
You can also contact Mimio for more information on the environmental performances of our
