GLRPPR Sector Resource: Iowa Electronics Waste Characterization Study

Title:
Iowa Electronics Waste Characterization Study

Abstract:
This study was undertaken to address the significant waste management and environmental issues represented in the large and growing number of personal computers, computer monitors, televisions, and related equipment entering the Iowa waste stream. Computers and related electronic equipment are one of the fastest growing segments of the municipal and commercial waste stream, in Iowa and nationwide. Environmentally, they are a concern for several reasons, principally leaded glass in computer monitors, and lead, mercury, and other heavy metals in a wide variety of electronic equipment.
