Electronic Waste: Some California State Agencies Have Discarded Their Electronic Waste Improperly, While State and Local Oversight is Limited
Elaine M. Howle (ed)
A lack of clear communication from oversight agencies, coupled with some CA state employees’ lack of knowledge about e-waste, contributed to state agencies improperly disposing of some electronic devices in the trash. This report reviewed the disposal practices of 5 CA state agencies, and found that all 5 had either discarded some of their electronic devices in the trash, or said they had done so. Oversight agencies have an opportunity to collaboratively find ways to more effectively communicate how state agencies should manage their e-waste. Because e-waste can contain toxic metals such as lead and mercury, the improper disposal of this waste by state agencies can have adverse consequences for the environment and the public’s health.
