Japanese Notice
Important safety information
Environmental information
The product you have purchased contains extracted natural resources that have
been used in the manufacturing process. This product may contain substances
known to be hazardous to the environment or to human health.
To prevent releases of harmful substances into the environment and to maximize
the use of our natural resources, Gateway provides the following information on
how you can responsibly recycle or reuse most of the materials in your “end of
life” product.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (commonly known a
WEEE) should never be disposed of in the municipal waste stream
(residential garbage collection). The “Crossed-Out Waste Bin” label
affixed to this product is your reminder to dispose of your “end of
life” product properly.
Substances such as glass, plastics, and certain chemical compounds are highly
recoverable, recyclable, and reusable. You can do your part for the environment
by following these simple steps:
When your electrical or electronic equipment is no longer useful to you, “take
it back” to your local or regional waste collection administration for recycling.
In some cases, your “end of life” product may be “traded in” for credit towards
the purchase of new Gateway equipment. Call Gateway to see if this program is
available in your area.
■ If you need further assistance in recycling, reusing, or trading in your “end of
life” product, you may contact us at the Customer Care number listed in your
product’s user guide and we will be glad to help you with your effort.
Finally, we suggest that you practice other environmentally friendly actions by
understanding and using the energy-saving features of this product (where
applicable), recycling the inner and outer packaging (including shipping
containers) this product was delivered in, and by disposing of or recycling used
batteries properly.
With your help, we can reduce the amount of natural resources needed to produce
electrical and electronic equipment, minimize the use of landfills for the disposal
of “end of life” products, and generally improve our quality of life by ensuring that
potentially hazardous substances are not released into the environment and are
disposed of properly.
