California Medical Association House of Delegates: Resolution 113-03: Toxicity of Computers and Electronics Waste

The CMA encourages its members and California health institutions to adopt purchasing or leasing contracts only with electronics manufacturers who are committed to safely handling the products at the end of life, meaning that they reuse and recycle to the greatest extent possible, do not export hazardous electronic waste to developing countries, and safely dispose of the waste that can not be reused or recycled.
