H.R. 2396 Funding Grants for Electronic Recycling Research and Development

Yesterday I told you about H.R. 2284, The Responsible Electronics Recycling Act and how it would prevent the export of non-functional or shredded electronic scrap to developing countries. I said that this should be passed because it would result in more U.S. based jobs and it would also mean less material containing toxics being sent to places that have lower environmental and labor protection standards than the U.S. One thing that I did not mention is that it also means more opportunities for U.S. based electronics recycling entrepreneurs.

There's another bill in the works, H.R. 2396, Electronic Device Recycling Research and Development Act, that will mean even more opportunities for us in the U.S. Its purpose is:

To authorize the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to award grants for electronic device recycling research, development, and demonstration projects, and for other purposes.

Take a look at both H.R. 2284 and H.R. 2396. if you feel like I do, urge your representative to vote for it. for Free Home Based Salvage and Recycling Information Including: Metals, Deconstruction and Used Building Materials, Gold and Precious Metals and E-Waste.
