[GreenYes] Fwd: California e-waste baseline study
This is a new report by the Calif. Integrated Waste Management Board California which has some interesting findings about the amount of e-waste currently stockpiled, cost estimates, and the recycling shortfall in the state.  It was just sent around by Michael Paparian, a member of the Waste Board who was the former Sierra Club lobbyist in Calaifornia.

Our Calif. Integrated Waste Management Board California e-waste baseline study will be released publicly on Wednesday, Dec. 12.  To review the report:
The study, conducted for the Waste Board by MGT of America, was designed to provide current data on selected E-waste volume, diversion cost estimates, and processing capacity for the year 2006.  The study revealed that approximately 2.9 million TVs (74,000 tons) and 3.2 million computer monitors (48,000 tons) are stockpiled in California households.  The Board is the state s primary recycling agency and a part of the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA).  
To view the power-point presentation summarizing the report:

I hope this adds some interesting background to our NEPSI process.
