Acer Launches Voluntary Take Back Program

Acer has just launched the Acer Voluntary Take Back Program. This eco-friendly initiative allows users to trade-in their old, unwanted Acer machines and receive a voucher of up to RM200. Recipients can use these vouchers to purchase selected Acer products. This program will be running for a total of one year from 1 August, 2013 to 31 July, 2014.

"Everybody has at least one gadget these days. Be it a smartphone, desktop, notebook or tablet; inevitably we will want to upgrade or the machine will run its lifespan. We noticed that a number of people do not really know of an avenue to dispose of these machines properly. Acer Malaysia has decided to launch this Voluntary Take Back program to encourage responsible discard of unwanted machines and not dumping it into the trash bin,” said Ricky Tan, General Manager of Acer Sales & Services Sdn Bhd.

The voluntary program will accept any Acer notebooks, Ultrabooks, desktops PCs, all-in-one (AIO) desktops, netbooks, tablets, smartphones, projectors and monitors; regardless of their working condition.

The following is the list of trade-in voucher values for qualifying unwanted Acer machines: 

 

TRADE-IN MACHINE TRADE-IN VOUCHER* VALUE MINIMUM RECOMMENDED RETAIL PRICE FOR NEW ACER MACHINE
Notebook and Ultrabook RM200  > RM1,000
Desktop PC (without monitor), all-in-one desktop and projector RM150 >RM750
Netbook, smartphone and tablet RM100 > RM500
Monitor RM20 > RM100

“This Acer Voluntary Take Back program helps communities reduce waste. It is a meaningful program to give Malaysians an option for disposing of end-of-life Acer machines and contributes towards a clutter-free earth. Together we can make the Earth clutter-free and also help decrease waste management and disposal costs for society,” said Tan.

Recycle with Acer Malaysia and be Rewarded

Acer Malaysia is currently working through Highpoint Service Network, with an authorized agency to recycle and dispose the collected machines in an environmentally friendly manner.
