Solid and Electronic Waste

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description EPA Region 1-NE is generating interest in 2003 among large electronics retailers in conducting e-waste collection and recycling pilots, and participating in EPA's Wastewise Program and Plug into Electronics Recycling Challenge.

EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response has launched a new initiative, the Resource Conservation Challenge. The Challenge is by 2005 to meet or beat a 35 percent recycling goal (the US is currently at 30 percent nationally) and to cut the generation of 30 priority chemicals, including lead, mercury, and several PBTs in half. Many ongoing federal, state and local priorities fit within the Challenge's framework.
