  • FGC - Electronic Waste Recycling Increases Waste Diversion (PDF)(2 pp, 586 K, EPA-905-F-14-001)
    The U.S. Railroad Retirement Board headquarters in Chicago recycled more than 3,200 pounds of electronic waste in one year, a nearly 10 percent increase over its baseline the previous year. This was accomplished by finding additional recycling or repurposing options for the agency’s equipment through the property management process and the Computers for Learning program.
