Adjust font size:

Beijing has set up a network of recycling centers for electronic products such as home appliances, a municipal official said Wednesday.

Zhang Yanyou, a Beijing Municipal Development and Reform Commission official, said the project had received investment from a private company and is already underway.

It has a designed annual capacity of dismantling 1.2 million units of discarded home appliances.

In 2006, Beijing households produced 110,000 tons of "electronic garbage", including 2.3 million cell phones.

By 2010, the city is estimated to produce 150,000 tons of "electronic garbage", according to Zhang.
