Report 2008-112: Electronic Waste: Some State Agencies Have Discarded Their Electronic Waste Improperly, While State and Local Oversight Is Limited (Release Date: November 2008)
Recommendation #3 To: Employment Development Department
To avoid contaminating the environment through the inappropriate discarding of electronic devices, state agencies should ascertain whether the electronic devices that require disposal can go into the trash. Alternatively, state agencies could treat all electronic devices they wish to discard as universal waste and recycle them.
1-Year Agency Response
Employment Development stated that all staff responsible for the disposition of surplus items have been trained on the proper disposition of electronic equipment and e-waste. It also stated that it identified and is using an accredited e-waste recycler. (See 2010-406, p. 98)
