  QUESTION: Recycling electronic waste to make an e-safe environment, 21 Feb 2006, South Australia

Given the push by the European Union for lead-free solders to be used in all production of electronic goods (Restriction of Hazardous Substances - RoHS), what information do you have regarding the contribution dumped electronic items such as radios, computers etc., make towards ground-water contamination and other environmental effects in Australia?
What is your stand in respect of RoHS?
ANSWER: 03 Apr 2006

Dear Trevor
Sorry for the delay in reply.
We have got some articles in regards to your query about hazardous effects of electronics dumping in the environment, which i am attaching with this e-mail. Also we are looking forward to some more articles/ answers in this relation and would forward them to you soon.
We have not gone as far as to RoHS, but surely hope it should be implemented as strictly as possible.
At this point, I would like to invite you to one of our Electronics E-group, which is called the Lead Safe Electronics Egroup [LSEE], is a global network of individuals and non-government organisations (NGOs) seeking to finalise the global ban of lead used in Electrical Appliances and Electronics industry.
You can directly put in your queries to this group and the members who have similar questions or answers to your ideas will chat with you in this group.
I will send you another email inviting you to be the member of this group. Hope you will accept it and once you are the member of the group, you are in to solve your problems and give solutions to others too!
Regards
Hasibah Keriwala
