Title:Electronics Waste Management in the United States: Approach One (Final)
Document Date:07/01/2008
Description:This document describes the results of one of two different methodologies that EPA used to estimate the amounts of commonly handled electronics that are stored, reused, recycled, and disposed. This approach relies primarily on market research data on sales of electronic products. It then applies these sales data to some of the most comprehensive collection information available to estimate product life spans and the amounts of particular products that are ready for end-of-life (EOL) management. From these EOL estimates, the estimated quantity recycled was subtracted to yield the quantity disposed. This approach also provides information on the export of cathode ray tube monitors and TVs, as well as the amount of selected electronics cumulatively in storage.
