The management and disposal of old and obsolete electronic equipment (e.g., computers, Cathode Ray Tubes, printers, scanners, and copiers, etc.), or "E-waste," presents certain challenges and potential environmental risks for many companies. The challenges, in part, stem from a federal regulatory framework that casts E-waste as a potential hazardous waste issue. There are, however, a number of federal regulatory exemptions and exclusions available that are intended to promote the recycling of these wastes and to therefore potentially reduce the federal regulatory burden.
