Groups to Launch E-waste Certification Program

Two environmental groups, the Basel Action Network and the Electronics TakeBack Coalition, will launch an electronic-waste accreditation and certification program that will prohibit shipping toxic e-waste overseas, the groups said Monday.

The certification program, which 32 electronics recyclers already signed on to, will launch in early 2010, officials with the Basel Action Network (BAN) said. The certification program will be an extension of the group’s current E-Stewards program, which lists environmentally responsible e-waste recyclers but doesn’t audit their practices.
