Mercury (Hg) Free logo 


Supported by funds provided by WRAP in the UK, several leading TV and Monitor manufacturers have come together to introduce two new voluntary marking, known as 'the mercury inside' and 'mercury free' logos. The main aim of the initiative is to enable collection, logistics and recycling treatment operators to identify, segregate and treat end of life equipment safely and efficiently. This allows cold-cathode fluorescent lamps to be treated independently from those based on more recent type light-emitting diodes. DIGITALEUROPE and WRAP are confident that this initiative will enhance the opportunity for recycling operators to efficiently recycle end of life TVs and Monitors in a safe and environmentally sound manner.

DIGITALEUROPE holds the exclusive intellectual property rights to the Logos for identifying products with and without Mercury (Hg) and is willing to offer, free of charge, Television and Computer Monitor producers the right to apply the Logos to their Products.

DIGITALEUROPE does not perform controls and has no control over the use the Television and Computer Monitor producers make of the right to apply the Logos. DIGITALEUROPE will not be liable for any misuse of the logo.

By applying the Logos, the Television and Computer Monitor producers automatically agree to irrevocably abide by the following Rules:

About the Mercury Free logo

The Mercury (Hg) Free logo is a voluntary initiative promoted by TV and Computer Monitor manufactures members of DIGITALEUROPE

The logos are primarily designed to easily identify LCD TVs and Computer Monitors that contain cold-cathode fluorescent lamps from those based on more recent type light-emitting diodes. The aim is to ease their segregation during the end of life stages of collection, logistics and recycling treatment and ensure a more efficient and safer handling of the equipment.
