Trash or Treasure?

As Rep. Gene Green prepares to reintroduce the Responsible Electronics Recycling Act, a recent study says such legislation would generate numerous jobs in the U.S. However, the proposed legislation still has detractors.

Electronics are part of our everyday waste stream. Many government officials say they feel the improper disposal of such devices presents a risk to both American jobs and to the world’s environment.

To that end, a bill known as the Responsible Electronics Recycling Act (RERA) was introduced in Congress as HR 2284 in June 2011 by Texas Rep. Gene Green, a Democrat, with 14 Republicans and nine Democrats signing on as co-sponsors. However, it died in committee. According to his office, Green will reintroduce the measure in this session of Congress. The bill restricts exports of untested and nonworking electronics from the U.S. to developing countries, though it would still allow free trade of tested and working used electronics being exported for reuse.

How to Resolve the E-Waste Challenge

ACCORDING to UN statistics, the global community produces a total of 40 million tonnes of e-waste every year - loaded into trucks the waste constitutes a chain that easily reaches around the globe.

Due to rapid product innovations and shorter replacement cycles, especially in ICT (IT Association SA- Industry Waste Management Plan, 2011), e-waste constitutes the fastest growing waste stream, specifically in developing countries, with estimates indicating that volumes could triple over the next five years.

E-waste is term used to cover almost all types of electrical and electronic equipment that have reached their product end of life cycle. It comprises three main categories, namely ICT and office equipment (e.g. desktop pc's, laptops, copy-/fax machines, cell phones, and telephones); consumer electronics (e.g. TV, radio, HiFi's, speakers) and household appliances (e.g. kettles, irons, vacuum cleaners). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) refers to Electronic Waste as "electronic products that are discarded by consumers."

Electronic waste is not just waste, it contains some very toxic substances, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, beryllium and brominated flame retardants. When the latter are burned at low temperatures they create additional toxins, such as halogenated dioxins and furans - some of the most toxic substances known to humankind.

This electronics drop off event was open to businesses and schools instead of just residents. Accurate IT Recycling Services of Columbus collected all types of electronics for free, except for televisions. Because of the costs of processing, there was a $15 recycling fee for TVs.
