Sony has been regularly holding workshops on recyclability since 2006 at Green Cycle Corporation. Its product designers, mechanical designers and other employees in various positions participate. The workshops aim to reaffirm the importance of and need for considering recyclability in product designs, and to ensure those ideas are later applied when creating products. During the workshops, the participants first observe a television disassembly line onsite, and then try to take apart an LCD television themselves. Afterwards, line managers at Green Cycle Corporation explain current challenges and needs, and then exchange ideas with the participants in a discussion. Participants then apply what they have learned when designing products that will be sold worldwide, with a first-hand understanding of the difficult work of disassembling products and ways to make it easier, as well as an appreciation of the importance of reusing materials that have been separated from used products.
