What is the Electronics Reuse and Recycling Campaign?
Why should my facility register?

How does it work? How can my facility become involved?

Electronics Reuse and Recycling Campaign
The ERRC is a challenge to see which federal facilities can reuse and recycle the most excess or surplus electronics Sponsored by:

Recycling Electronics and Asset Disposition (READ) Services

ERRC Purpose
Demonstrate the federal government's commitment to electronics stewardship at end-of-life (EOL) Address problems associated with electronics recycling in the federal sector
Recognize agency efforts to reuse and recycle excess or surplus electronics

ERRC Assistance
Assists federal agencies and facilities in understanding the electronics disposition process at EOL
Helps federal agencies implement environmentally sound electronics management (EO 13423) Provides information on EOL requirements and the Computers for Learning (CFL) donation process

Extent of the Problem
Barely 1 in 10 computers gets reused or recycled… …but 94% of cars end up in scrap yards for part reclamation and recycling to create other products.

Federal Issue
Approximately 10,000 federally owned computers could be deemed excess or surplus each week
The Federal Government set Environmentally Sound Management guidelines for itself to ensure it is responsibly managing its electronic assets!

From This

To This

It’s Required!
EO 13423 Implementing Instructions Ensure that all non-usable electronic products are reused, donated, sold, or recycled using environmentally sound management practices at end of life. The ERRC helps you meet this requirement!
