Executive Director

National Center for Electronics Recycling


Presentation overview

Presentation Overview

  • National Center for Electronics Recycling

  • Overview of Centralized Data Repository

    • Goal, Benefits

  • Data Gathering Activities

  • Trends

    • Per Capita rates

  • Next Steps


National center for electronics recycling

National Center for Electronics Recycling

  • Mission: coordinate initiatives targeting the recycling of end-of-life electronics in the United States and support actions to move towards a national system

  • In Polymer Technology Park in Davisville, WV

  • Incorporated as non-profit in WV, 501(c)(3)

  • Manufacturer-led organization – leading companies on environmental initiatives on Advisory Committee

    • Manufacturers, approve projects

    • Multi-stakeholder project committees


Cdr goal

CDR Goal

  • Organized under the multi-stakeholder NCER Data Committee

  • Goal: Develop the premier open U.S. data source for electronics recycling program data and information.

  • Building on previous data standards development effort in 2004

    • Data collection forms


Cdr benefits

CDR Benefits

  • Local Governments and Private Collectors:evaluate your options, learn from colleagues across the country, measure your success.

  • Recyclers:Gain national visibility, evaluate potential business opportunities, and contribute to the development of the electronics recycling industry as a whole.

  • Stakeholders Interested in Electronics Recycling Policy:Local, state, and the federal government are considering how to handle the challenges of recycling used electronics. Effective policies must be based on a reliable data.


Example data collection forms

Example Data Collection Forms


Cdr status

CDR status

  • With IMTS, the NCER maintains the Centralized Data Repository of electronics recycling programs from around the United States. www.electronicsrecycling.org/cdr

    • Working on multiple fronts to gather more data

  • Data forms can be used online, paper

    • Also willing to work with data in whatever form


Cdr capabilities

CDR Capabilities

  • REPORTS: Pre-Programmed and available for analysis

  • Volume Collected by Year: Total pounds of material collected, broken down by year.

  • Volume Collected by State: Total pounds of material collected, broken down by state.

  • Volume Collected by Product Type: Total pounds of material collected, broken down by the type of electronics

  • Units Collected by Product Type: Total number of units collected, broken down by the type of electronics

  • Waste per Participant: Average weight of material collected per participant

  • Total Participants by State: Total number of participants, broken down by state

  • Average Transportation Cost


High level statistics

High Level Statistics

  • 43Programs in Repository3 Nationwide40 Non-Nationwide

  • 40,610,637 Pounds Collected

  • Largest Programs

    • Massachusetts: data from 204 towns, 12.8 million lbs

    • Hennepin County, MN: 10.2 million lbs

    • California SB 20/50 not yet integrated, but available


Other statistics

Other Statistics

  • Most reports/sponsors: Local governments, over half

  • Others: non-profits, retailers, state government aggregates, manufacturers

  • Pounds per participant: most between 100-200 lbs


Per capita calculations from the cdr

Per Capita Calculations from the CDR

  • Massachusetts (2004)

    • 2.94 lbs./capita (average for the 197 towns/cities reporting to the MA DEP)

  • California’s first program year (2005)

    • 1.79 lbs/capita

  • Branford, CT (2004)

    • 1.61 lbs./capita (CRTs only)

  • Kirkland, WA (2004, curbside program)

    • 1.61lbs./capita

  • Snohomish County, WA (2004, transfer station)

    • 1.71 lbs./capita

  • Hennepin County, MN (2004)

    • 3.4 lbs./capita


Cdr extension brand sort data

CDR Extension- Brand Sort Data

  • Added in 2005 as part of Orphan Research

  • Compiled existing studies for “National Return Share Estimates”

  • Number of Brands:

    • Desktops – 682; Laptops – 65; Monitors – 674; TVs - 436 brands

  • Launching Brand Data Management System in June

    • Allows sorting based on multiple scenarios/conditions (i.e. unit vs weight)


Challenges going forward

Challenges Going Forward

  • Hard to draw conclusions from limited data

    • Not all programs have reported data

    • Not all data categories available for each program

  • Getting the word out

    • Using conferences, publications, email announcements

    • CALL FOR DATA developed

  • Getting more recycler data without double-counting

    • Protect any confidential data

  • Minimizing burden on data reporters
