GSA, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the White House Council on Environmental Quality co-chaired an interagency task force that prepared a National Strategy for Electronics Stewardship (PDF). By implementing the recommendations presented in this strategy, the federal government will lay the groundwork for improving the design of electronic products and enhancing America’s management of used or discarded electronics.
The new strategy creates a roadmap of how the federal government can act responsibly when disposing of electronics.
