Environmental Sustainability

Industry initiatives are helping to make recycling our old electronics as easy as buying new ones. Today’s consumers have more access and resources for recycling devices at the end of their life.

Manufacturers across the country are committed to reducing e-waste and adverse environmental effects. 

However, state proposals to regulate recycling requirements with arbitrary burdens and costs threaten to stifle the industry's success.

We support smart, collaborative approaches to improving electronics recycling and increasing sustainability. 

Through industry-led programs and initiatives, we have already made significant progress.
