Managing Electronic Waste (E-Waste)
WEBINAR, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PDT
The e-waste recovery infrastructure fostered by the CEW recycling program has resulted in approximately 1.2 billion pounds of obsolete TVs and monitors collected and dismantled in California over the past seven years. However, traditional markets for used CRT glass have diminished, creating challenges for recyclers looking for outlets for this material, even as an increasing amount of non-CRT video displays are joining the e-waste stream. CalRecycle and DTSC have been working on revised regulations to address this; an update on regulations and a review of the e-waste claims and reporting processes.
