The EcoCom SIG Presents…
There are now already 25 states with e-waste laws, 17 of which have banned electronic waste from landfills including California. So, what do these laws require and what is the responsible thing for a corporation to do?
The panel will include experts from electronics recyclers (Clover Wireless and eRecyclers.com), and electronics manufacturer (Sony), who have been tackling this problem for many years. They will provide insight on this problem and potential solutions including answers to the questions below and more:
- How big is the eWaste problem?
- What do new and evolving eWaste laws require and where are they headed?
- What impact will “Producer Responsibility” laws, ARF fees, and other measures mean for me and my company?
- What eWaste processing standards and certifications are available and how do I ensure I am dealing with responsible partners?
- What are the available options for responsibly recycling corporate eWaste and how do I find responsible partners?
- What about sensitive corporate and personal data on used corporate electronics?
- What do the best-in-class corporations do to handle this problem?

CEO, E-World Recyclers
Bob Erie is the Founder and CEO of E-World Recycler and has over fifteen years of experience in the electronics recycling field. Bob founded E-World Recyclers in 2006 in an effort to create a state of the art recycling facility and the company has since attracted many of San Diego’s most prominent manufacturers and businesses. The company has also been involved in helping to develop and test the Responsible Recycler (R2) Standard, a set of rules which prevents the export of electronic waste to third world nations and in 2010 E-World Recyclers became one of the first companies in the nation to achieve R2 certification. Since 2009 Bob has worked to create a network of recyclers across the nation to help meet the needs of manufacturers who are now being held responsible for recycling efforts in various states. The result of Bob’s vision has been E-World Online and the Manufacturer Interstate Take-Back System or MITS. In 2012 the E-World Online MITS program will be responsible for recycling approximately 60 million pounds of electronics in 21 states on behalf of 12 manufacturers.
