Title:Management of Electronic Waste in the United States: Approach Two (Draft Final)
Document Date:04/01/2007
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 government statistics on sales of electronic products. It then uses the same lifespan data (with some modifications) as Approach One to estimate end-of-life (EOL) quantities. From these EOL estimates, the quantity of selected electronics disposed was subtracted to yield the quantity recycled. This approach also provides information on the composition of electronic products, as well as the number of select electronic devices entering storage/reuse annually.
