A new report from the Government Accountability Office -- relating the findings of investigators who went under cover to see how well the CRT disposal rule was followed and enforced -- concludes that the U.S. EPA is abdicating its responsibility for regulating e-waste. "Companies easily circumvent the CRT rule," the report concludes. "EPA's enforcement is lacking." The EPA disagreed with the GAO's recommendations for tightening enforcement and broadening regulations, saying it preferred the voluntary approach now in place.

Great story, I just wish we could find out who these recyclers are so we don't use them.
