  1. Thank you for posting this important information. While we all use technology in our daily lives, we often never consider the consequences if that technology is not managed properly at end-of-life. Businesses, government agencies, schools and others need to understand the regulations that might apply to them and make certain that the toxins contained within our cell phones, computers, televisions, PDAs, printers and other electronic devices do not get released and cause harm to human health and the environment. You helping get this word out is very helpful.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Julie.
    I agree completely. Anything that we can do to keep eWaste out of a landfill is a worthwhile cause. Thanks for providing a means…

  3. We have developed an innovative approach to e-waste that tackles three problems at once. Re-Use of old PCs and UBUNTU to empower the less fortunate – TEDxCreativeCoast – Murray Wilson – eWaste and the Social Landfill http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk5Rngk8lAM&feature=player_embedded
