BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- October 09, 2012

Partnering with Samsung and Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the City
and County of Broomfield staged a special E-Waste Collection Event this past
Saturday at no charge to consumers.

ERI, the largest recycler of electronic waste in the nation, will safely
recycle all e-waste collected at this weekend’s special event serving the
residents of the County and City of Broomfield. The event was designed to give
the community at large an opportunity to safely unload their old computers,
television sets and other out-dated, unusable or unwanted consumer electronic
items for proper recycling that is safe and environmentally sound. Samsung
worked with ERI to sponsor the e-waste takeback event and encouraged
participating residents to sign up for the Energy Star Pledge.

Recognizing the company’s green efforts, Broomfield County officials praised
Samsung’s environmental leadership and its efforts promoting ENERGY STAR.

“With their collaborative support and proactive actions in Broomfield - and
across the U.S.,” said Shirley Garcia, Environmental Services Coordinator for
the City and County of Broomfield, “Samsung continues to recognize the
significanceof being a formative leader in the electronic profession by being
responsible recyclers of electronic waste and stewards of the environment.”

“It’s good to once again be partnering with Samsung for this special takeback
program,” said John Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of ERI. “Samsung is an
organization that has been forward-thinking in terms of environmental
concerns. This electronic recycling event is a further example of that
commitment. We are proud to have once again, alongside Samsung, been able to
help the good people of Broomfield become more environmentally responsible by
offering them a convenient opportunity to safely dispose of their old
electronic devices at the same time.”
