Ontario: "Recycled Computers, Televisions Still Ending up in Dumps"
"Ontario’s high-profile electronic waste disposal program is failing to recycle millions of computers and televisions it promised to keep out of landfill.
In its first year, the Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) — a private agency created by provincial regulation — gathered only a third of the 42,000 tonnes of toxin-laced equipment it was originally supposed to collect, according to reports obtained by the Star.
Environment Minister John Gerretsen wants to know why. "
