The updated 200-page report summarizes regulatory developments in electronics takeback around the world. (pub. 1/05) Coverage includes 23 countries (adding seven to our 2004 report) in Europe, Asia, including new details from South Korea and China.
The new European Directives (WEEE and RoHS) are explained in plain English, with details on who is affected, and which items have toxic materials restrictions. We include collection organization information, and fee structures, and electronics recovery rates when available. Plus, we provide English-speaking contacts for most countries.
On the U.S. side, the report includes background and analysis of the current regulatory climate for electronics stewardship, and summaries of state electronics “takeback” and related restrictive bills, as well as the results of major pilot collection programs at the local level.
The report features the results of our exclusive 50-state survey on the status of regulations that reduce barriers to electronics recycling in U.S. states, (including an updated table listing newest Universial waste regs), and the 2004 survey that provides opinions of the state recycling managers on the issues.
