I’d like to get a better understanding of e-waste
recycling is working from the perspective of an industry participant, and to
also understand the impact of national retailers starting to get involved in
Also, we have a client that is interested in starting a e-waste
program in their local community. Below are a few questions they have
that I thought you might be able to help us with:
~ Do you know of any place I might find some research or
market information on the establishment of a local electronics recycling program?
~ How does a local program cover the cost of collection and
transportation on a large scale?
~ After collection what is the most effective method for
allocation of the material? Is it best collected and send to someone else for
dispersal or does it make more financial sense to collect and sort the material
for maximum value?
~ What is the best source for information related to local
codes for collection of electronics waste material?
Thanks for any information you can provide.
