Keep in mind the end-of-life costs when you are shopping for electronics. Some manufacturers are offering Take Back programs that provide “cradle to grave” management for their products which includes taking back and recycling their products. Take Back programs create an incentive to the manufacturers to design for recycling, increase the use of recycled materials, and decrease the use of toxic materials. The Electronics Take Back Coalition provides a list of manufacturers that offer Take Back programs; just click on “Corporate Responsibility.” The Electronics Take Back Coalition is a national coalition of organizations promoting sustainable and responsible practices throughout the electronics industry.

Greater awareness about the end-of-life issues with electronics has resulted in the development of tools, such as EPA’s Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), to help purchasers evaluate laptops, desktop computers, and monitors using environmental standards, such as Environmentally Sensitive Materials, Materials Selection, Design for End-of-Life, Product Longevity, Energy Use, End-of-Life Management, Packaging, and Corporate Performance.

The following unusable electronics are considered e-waste:

  • Audio and Stereo Equipment

Electronic equipment contain toxic compounds such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants.
These toxic compounds can leach into the soil and water supplies or contaminate our air, if electronics are sent to landfills or incinerated.
Discarded electronics, called e-waste, are the fastest growing waste stream in the U.S. By 2016 over 3 billion electronics will be scrapped or an average of about 400 million units a year1.
In 2007, less than 19% of obsolete electronics are being recycled2. And the majority of the electronics collected for recycling or re-use are exported to developing countries with no worker safety or environmental programs in places3.
Local governments are spending more of their limited tax dollars managing e-waste.
