RCRA Online Number:14599
Date:04/12/2002
To:Lampkin

Organization of Recipient:NA
Description: EPA does not have an approval program for electronic recycling facilities, but the Electronics Industry Association (EIA) maintains a nationwide list. These recycling facilities are controlled at the state and local level. Much of the electronic reuse and recycling market exists overseas, so EPA is working with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to ensure that electronics are safely handled when exported. The National Electronics Product Stewardship Initiative (NEPSI) promotes the reuse and recycling of obsolete electronics. EPA proposed rules to encourage the safe management, reuse, and recycling of cathode ray tubes (CRTs) (SEE ALSO: 67 FR 40507; 6/12/02).
