State Electronics Challenge
Is your organization interested in reducing the environmental impact of the electronic equipment
it purchases, uses, and disposes? If the answer is "yes" please consider joining
the State Electronics Challenge (SEC). The SEC is a voluntary program, open free of charge
to any state, regional, and local government agency, including public schools, colleges, and
universities. The SEC promotes environmental stewardship of computers - from purchasing
"green" computers through power management and responsible end of life management -
resulting in measurable reductions in energy, greenhouse gases, solid and hazardous waste, and
associated costs. In December 2009, the North Dakota Department of Health, Division of
Waste Management, was welcomed as the first EPA Region 8 Partner in the SEC. Joining the
SEC will help you learn how your organization can benefit from the program's proven action
plan, implementation tools, and free technical assistance
to reduce the environmental footprint of electronic equipment. The SEC was developed by
the Northeast Recycling Council, Inc., and successfully piloted in the Northeast over the past
two years. It's modeled after the Federal Electronics Challenge.
