In the Presidential Proclamation for America Recycles Day, November 2010, the President established an Interagency Task Force on Electronics Stewardship. The President charged the Task Force with developing a national strategy for electronics stewardship, with CEQ, EPA, and GSA as the leads. The Task Force has released the National Strategy for Electronics Stewardship (PDF) (34 pp, 559K, about PDF) report, which details the federal government’s plan to enhance the management of electronics throughout the product lifecycle — from the design to the eventual recycling or disposal of a product.

The National Strategy for Electronics Stewardship provides four overarching goals, the action items under each goal, and the projects that will implement each action item. These recommendations are summarized below and described in more detail in the report.

Build Incentives for Design of Greener Electronics, and Enhance Science, Research and Technology Development in the United States

Ensure that the Federal Government Leads By Example

Increase Safe and Effective Management and Handling of Used Electronics in the United States

Reduce Harm from US Exports of E-Waste and Improve Safe Handling of Used Electronics in Developing Countries

An on-line annex of benchmarks that lists each of the projects, the primary agency responsible for the project and any agencies supporting the primary agency in that effort, and the target date for completion of the project. As the National Strategy is developed in further detail by the departments and agencies, and as the Strategy is implemented, the annex will be updated. As appropriate, action items and projects under them may be realigned as efficiencies.
