Products once considered unusable have become an opportunity. Used products can be given new life through repair or refurbishment or they become a resource of materials for new products. For example, many charities, community programs and schools are in need of used consumer electronic equipment, consider donating or selling used electronics before recycling old products. Before donating such products, check with the organization to obtain the criteria for accepting used electronics. Used healthcare equipment not working may be repairable to extend its life. Another way to extend product life and close the material loop is refurbishment. Underneath the Diamond Select program Philips refurbishes medical imaging equipment. For products that cannot be repaired, consider recycling the products as the next best alternative.
For detailed information on how to properly recycle Philips products, please select a recycling service from the list below. For our refurbished medical imaging program, information about the Philips Diamond Select products can be found here.
