Electronic Waste Management Workshop
Toxics Reduction via Responsible Electronic Management
Did you know that every year consumers worldwide throw away 20 to 50 million metric tons of electronics, recycling only 10 to 18 percent? This is comparable to throwing away 45,500 to 125,000 fully loaded jumbo jets. Is your organization taking steps to reduce this rapidly growing waste stream?
Please join the Center for Sustainable Business Practices at Cleveland State University, in partnership with the Delta Institute, the Green Electronics Council, the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability for the City of Cleveland for a morning workshop to learn more about electronic waste, it’s regional and global impacts and the benefits of integrating this important topic into your organization’s sustainability initiatives.
The workshop will feature steps that can be taken by any organization to responsibly handle and reduce electronic waste, recycling companies that exist here in Cleveland and case studies of Cleveland area organizations that are already taking action to reduce their electronic waste. Registration is $15, and a light breakfast and parking will be provided. Corporate Roundtable members attend free! The USEPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) provided funding for this project.
Date: November 16, 2012 Time: 7:30 a.m.-8:00 a.m. – Breakfast and Registration 8:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. –Workshop Location: Cleveland State University, Main Campus
