[greenyes] SWANA Supports Producer Responsibility for E-Waste


The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) has endorsed producer
responsibility for e-waste, to prevent the cost of properly managing
discarded computers and televisions from becoming a new financial burden on
municipalities.

"Producer responsibility financing policies create a strong incentive
for changes to products that keep environmental at the forefront of
consideration during production and these policies can leverage
private-sector efficiency to re-capture the most value from end-of-life
electronics," SWANA President John Skinner is reported to have stated.
