Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--November 11, 2013, to November 15, 2013

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed e-waste, lead, and industrial waste recycling.

Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

The ‘Three Rs’ for E-Waste--There are resources to help you manage e-waste. Quite simply, these resources embrace the most fundamental objectives of waste management—reduce, reuse, and recycle.

E-Waste Recycling--Here's some help in sorting out some of the e-waste recycling options and issues.

Lead in Construction--EPA has several regulations to ensure that lead contamination is minimized during construction activities. Notable among them is the renovation, repair, and painting in structures built before 1978, when lead-based paint was banned.

Trends in Lead Violations--EPA regulations to ensure that lead contamination is minimized during renovation, repair, and painting activities are well enforced nationwide. Here's a review the “Top 5” most violated” requirements cited by the EPA during a sweeping 2012 enforcement action in nine states.

Industrial Waste Recycling--Don't Be a Sham--In its ongoing commitment to recycling industrial waste streams, EPA has made considerable concessions to enable and promote industrial hazardous waste recycling. However, one aspect that is not likely to see less regulation is that of what constitutes legitimate recycling versus sham recycling.
