Book Description HTML

E-waste, electronic waste, e-scrap and end-of-life electronics are terms often used to describe used electronics that are nearing the end of their useful life, and are discarded, donated or given to a recycler. Though e-waste is the commonly used term, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency considers e-waste to be a subset of used electronics and recognizes the inherent value of these materials that can be reused, refurbished or recycled to minimize the actual waste that might end up in a landfill or improperly disposed in an unprotected dump site either in the U.S. or abroad. This book examines the efforts of the U.S. Government to manage e-waste.
