Several laws passed in the European Union (EU) and the United States regulate the take-back of used cell phones so that they may be reused or recycled rather than discarded in ordinary waste streams. These measures are designed to reduce the amount of waste generated, prevent the dispersal of hazardous materials into our ecosystems, and conserve the earth's limited resources by encouraging more sustainable approaches to manufacturing. This fact sheet, provided by INFORM, highlights policy considerations that should be kept in mind when forming take-back legislation.
