Re: [greenyes] E waste computer recycling


Kris,
the best thing you could do for your business is to sign the "Electronic Recyclers Pledge of True Stewardship," hold to the standards, and feature that in marketing and selling your business. You - and all Greenyessers" - can read more about this very important green pledge at www.ban.org.
For more information, contact the Computer Takeback Campaign, who have worked tirelessly to raise awareness and promote good policy concerning environmental justice issues with use of prison labor and overseas labor for electronics recycling - at http://www.computertakeback.com/.

Good luck,

For you who have been on this list for a while I use to recycle shipping pallets and make them into planter boxes.
I was know as Oakplanterbox. Kris Copenhagen Male not Female.
New time New need.
I have started E-WASTE NORTHWEST in Portland, OR.
Here is my question.
When a person recycles a monitor or computer. Do they know really where it goes?
Monitors and electronic waste in a big business in the Asian, India, and Africa market.
Buyers pay anywhere from $7.00 a monitor up to $10 a monitor and there is 950 monitors to a container depending on the size of the monitor.
This is not recycling this is exporting are waste some place else and making a big profit.
I do not practice this type of recycling.
Not all e waste is exported out of the United States but a lot is. True recyclers dismantles and separates this type of waste and send it to the appropriate place for recycle.
