'Recycle-A-PC' Keeps Old Electronics Out of Waste Stream: "about one billion units of computer equipment will become obsolete or be 'retired' between now and 2010. This represents approximately 40 billion pounds worth of potential scrap, much of which could end up in landfills. But, most of this material is recyclable, while some is hazardous. A new program, www.RecycleAPC.com, from Metech International, a leading electronics recycling company, aims to keep as much of this scrap out of the waste stream as possible."
