INFORMATIONAL NETWORKING CALLS ON PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP FOR ELECTRONICS

The Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) announces its first series of
Informational Networking Calls on Product Stewardship for Electronics!
The invitation below provides all the necessary information for your
registration. PSI hopes that you will join us on these calls, as the
presentations we have lined up will prove to be highly relevant and
informative. If there are others that you believe could also benefit
from participating in these calls (local governments, HHW officials,
industry representatives, and others), please pass this invitation along
to them.

Retailers' Perspective on Electronics Legislation - Marc Pearl,
Executive Director, Consumer Electronics Retailers Coalition (CERC)
Thursday, September 8, 2005, 2:00 - 3:30 PM, EST

CERC is a not-for-profit public policy trade association representing
Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, Target, Tweeter, Wal-Mart, the
North American Retail Dealers Association, Retail Industry Leaders
Association, and the National Retail Federation. CERC has developed a
consensus legislative position on electronics recycling, focusing on a
national product stewardship solution based on producer responsibility.

HP's Product Stewardship Solution to Electronics Recycling - David
Isaacs, Director of Government and Public Policy; and Renee St. Denis,
Director of Product Recycling Solutions for the Americas
(Hewlett-Packard Company)
Wednesday, September 14, 2005, 2:00 - 3:30 PM, EST

Hewlett-Packard's Product Stewardship Solution is based on implementing
a market driven system for recycling CRT devices. The approach requires
manufacturers to take responsibility for the recycling of a specified
amount of CRT devices, either by implementing a recycling program or by
assuming financial responsibility for this amount, thereby minimizing
the burden currently resting on states, local governments, and
retailers.
