GLRPPR Sector Resource: State Electronics Challenge

Title:
State Electronics Challenge

Abstract:
The State Electronics Challenge (SEC) is a voluntary program that encourages state, regional, and local governments, including schools and other public entities, to: purchase greener electronic products; reduce the impacts of electronic products during use; and manage obsolete electronics in an environmentally safe way. The SEC provides resources to help state, local, and regional government and agencies to become leaders and face the new challenges posed by the electronics waste stream. The SEC is modeled after the very successful Federal Electronics Challenge (FEC), which was created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Office of the Federal Environmental Executive.
