EPA, the General Services Administration, and the White House Council on Environmental Quality are requesting written comments to inform the national framework for electronics stewardship that is being
developed by the Interagency Task Force on Electronics Stewardship. On November 15, 2010, President Obama signed a presidential proclamation celebrating the strides the country has made in recycling while also highlighting the need for greater attention on electronic waste management throughout the product lifecycle. Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Chair Nancy Sutley established an interagency task force to provide a national strategy and recommendations for areas of Federal agency operational and managerial improvement associated with electronics stewardship.
All comments must be received on or before March 16, 2011. To learn more, including how to submit comments, please visit: www.epa.gov/wastes/conserve/materials/ecycling/taskforce/.
