CalRecycle Report: “Future of Electronic Waste Management in California”

A new report from CalRecycle entitled “Future of Electronic Waste Management in California” recommends incentivizing greater repair and reuse of electronic devices. It’s the first time we're aware of that California (or any state) has recognized and legitimized repair (and reuse) as alternative strategies to recycling.
