Industries Alliance (EIA) has launched a Consumer Education Initiative
(CEI), a Web-based resource that provides consumers and others with information
on recycling and reuse opportunities for used electronics. Participating
manufac-turers include an industry statement in a variety of media, including
owners manuals, company Web sites and product
literature, directing consumers to the CEI Web page (www.eiae.org) where
find recycling and reuse opportunities for used electronics in their area,
including state and local collection programs, charitable organizations
and recyclers that accept used electronics.
Although the initiative is voluntary, EIA encourages active company participation
by maintaining and publishing a list of companies that have agreed to
develop and implement programs consistent with the initiative. Participating
companies include an industry statement in their product information to
direct consumers to the site.
