Federal Prison Industries, known by its trade name UNICOR, is a government corporation within the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) that provides employment to staff and inmates at U.S. federal prisons. UNICOR sells a variety of consumer products and services, such as office furniture and clothing, and industrial products. In 1997, UNICOR began to accept computers, monitors, printers, and other types of e-waste for recycling at federal prisons.

E-waste contains many toxic substances harmful to humans and to the environment. Due to complaints from BOP and UNICOR staff and inmates, the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) investigated the safety of UNICORäó»s e-waste recycling operations, as well as other allegations of theft, conflict of interest, and environmental crimes.
