State Electronics Challenge

Organization(s) Northeast Recycling Council
Project Description The State Electronics Challenge (SEC) is a new initiative that challenges – and assists – state, regional, and local governments, including schools, colleges, universities, and other public entities to improve the life cycle management of their computers.

Government agencies and organizations participate as "Partners" in the program and commit to:

-Purchasing greener computers

-Reducing power consumption of computers during use

-Managing obsolete computer products in an environmentally safe way

The SEC provides Partners with resources and technical assistance for improving electronics management practices, and offers annual recognition to Partners that have achieved specific goals. As of March 18, 2008 there were 12 Partners.

A benefit of being a Partner is access to partner-only teleconferences. The first such call was April 15, 2008 and discussed how to procure green computers. Becoming a Partner is free and the benefits are ample. This project is funded by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.
