Re: [greenyes] E-Cycling at Office Depot


HP is currently shredding computers(including plastic housings) and circuit
boards whole and shipping them from the US to Canada for smelting. The plastics
in the computer housing and boards which contain flame retardants serve as fuel
in the smelting process. The regulations for air emissions and hazardous waste
generation are different in Canada then in California.
