cathode ray tubeCathode Ray Tube (CRT) Rule Regulations took effect in January 2007 requiring exporters to notify the EPA prior to shipping broken or unbroken CRTs to another country for recycling and receive written consent from the receiving country before shipments can be made. Feature Story

Although electronic waste is less than 10% of the current solid waste stream, it is growing 2-3 times faster than any other waste stream. In 1998, of the 20 million computers taken out of service, only 2.3 million, which is slightly more than 10%, were recycled. Between 2000 and 2007, as many as 500 million personal computers will become obsolete. For the latest (April 2007) data on national electronic waste management, go to eCycling Home.

Electronic waste refers to electronic products that have finished their useful life. Consumer electronic products include televisions and monitors, computers, computer peripherals, audio and stereo equipment, VCRs, DVD players, video cameras, telephones, fax and copying machines, cellular phones, wireless devices, and video game consoles.
