GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Keys to Managing E-Waste: Product Stewardship and Recycling Initiatives

Title:
The Keys to Managing E-Waste: Product Stewardship and Recycling Initiatives

Abstract:
Technological advancements have made our lives faster, easier and more efficient, but with the downside of increasing the proliferation of electronic waste, or e-waste. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, only 18 percent of the 2.25 million tons of obsolete televisions, cell phones and computers in 2007 were recycled; the remainder was disposed of in landfills.
