Tech industry challenges e-cycling programs


EDN, 8/25/2009

The high-tech industry is starting to fight back against what it calls onerous e-waste recycling bills.

Trouble is brewing on both the East and West coasts. In July, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and the Information Industry Technology Council (ITI) filed a federal lawsuit against New York City over its e-waste recycling law and regulations. The lawsuit charges that the city’s e-waste program is unconstitutional. Among the suit’s charges are that the law exceeds the city’s authority in regulating interstate commerce, violates the rights to equal protection under the law, and violates due process. The city council passed the law in 2008. This spring, the department of sanitation issued regulations that required electronics manufacturers to file by July 31 detailed plans of how they would meet the regulations or face penalties of $1,000 per day. Because of the lawsuit, which was filed on July 24, that deadline has been delayed...

E-waste Offsets: A Good Idea but How Effective?


triplepundit, 8/17/2009

In response to the ever-expanding challenge of electronic waste (e-waste), most developed countries have enacted legislation that mandates the responsible disposal and safe handling of discarded electronics within their own borders. (Thankfully, the US is catching up with the rest of the developed world, state by state.) But what happens to your old TV, computer or cell phone after you drop it off at your local “green” recycler?..

Consumers Trepidatious Over TV Recycling


Environmental Leader, 7/22/2009

The emerging category of “green” electronics has captured consumers’ attention in the past year. They are beginning to understand the various environmental and health impacts of the plethora of devices they interact with on a daily basis, according to research from the Natural Marketing Institute.

Consumers are most anxious that their devices are difficult to recycle, but their concern differs by device, with almost 60 percent of consumers concerned that televisions are difficult to recycle, and only slightly over 40 percent of consumers stating that phones are difficult to recycle, according to the 2008 LOHAS Consumer Trends Database...

Costco Pairs With Gazelle for Old Tech Trade-Ins


Wall Street Journal, 7/22/2009

Last week, Costco quietly rolled out a new partnership with Web site Gazelle to encourage its legions of discount shoppers to trade in their old technology for credit they can spend on new gadgets.

The Costco customer program works pretty much like the one that startup Gazelle has offered to everyone for about a year. Enter the make and model of your old gadget (say, a third-generation 8GB iPod Nano) into the Costco Gazelle Web site, and the company tells you how much cash they’ll give you for it ($47, as of Friday, July 17) if you put it in a box and mail it to them. Gazelle then resells your old gear on eBay and to wholesalers — or, if it’s really old, they’ll recycle it for the value of its tech innards...

Toxic e-Waste


Tech & U, 7/12/2009

Almost every day, old computers, mobile phones and other gizmos make way for new ones. Not surprisingly, e-waste is now a fast-growing part of the garbage stream in many countries. If improperly disposed of, the lead, mercury and other toxic materials inside e-waste can leak from landfills.

Still more needs to be done.

As more PCs and other electronics get replaced each year, e-waste dumping is turning into a serious problem, especially in emerging economies where developed countries are said to send their used equipment to.

Research firm Gartner says 37 million secondary PCs were refurbished and exported to emerging markets last year, and this is expected to hit 69 million by 2012...

When Recycling Is Bad for the Environment


Discover Magazine, 7/6/2009

You just polished off some yogurt and, because of that chasing-arrows symbol on the bottom of the container, you assume it should go in the recycle bin. Right?

Not necessarily.

Glass, metal, and paper are pretty straightforward, but when it comes to plastic, things get tricky. The truth is that what you can recycle depends on where you live and what materials your city’s facilities can handle. There are many different types of plastic, and they cannot all be recycled together. So unless you’re diligent about sorting all your plastics, then “recycling” that yogurt container may be doing more harm than simply throwing it away...
