The Regional Water Authority, New Haven, Connecticut is one of the newest members to join the State Electronics Challenge. The Challenge takes the mystery out of buying green office equipment, using it efficiently, and recycling it responsibly by providing a simple, straightforward process.
The Challenge is a free program that provides public sector entities with access to tools, resources, and technical assistance to green their purchase, use and/or recycling of office equipment. It documents the success of participating programs and provides Partners with annual sustainability reports that detail reductions in energy use, GHGs, and waste. Exemplary programs are acknowledged through the Challenge’s awards and recognition program.
To learn more about the State Electronics Challenge, register for an introductory webinar. There are two webinars scheduled:
- February 12, 3 p.m. eastern

The State Electronics Challenge is funded by a grant from the EPA Region 5 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, and with the support of its sponsors—Samsung, Panasonic, Sims Recycling Solutions, the Consumer Electronics Association, and the ISRI R2/RIOS program.
