When Mitsubishi joined the MRM program, in 2009, David Thompson, president of MRM said, “MRM is immensely pleased to welcome Mitsubishi to the growing family of manufacturers seeking to provide environmentally responsible recycling opportunities to customers in all 50 states. With the popularity of new television technologies, we are seeing a tremendous need for recycling televisions and we applaud Mitsubishi for its efforts to help the environment and make recycling easier for consumers”
