The University of California - Irvine offers programs on recycling electronic waste.

The Program in Industrial Ecology at UC-Irvine brings together a strong interdisciplinary group of scholars interested in understanding the complex interactions between industrial activities and environmental systems at all scales of analysis. We use the case study approach to explore various configurations of industrial and ecological systems, and how our understanding can lead to new policy designs or changes in existing policies to protect public and environmental health without compromising economic gains or stifling innovation in industrial productivity.
One case study deals with the use of toxic chemicals in electronic products, and how to create environmentally benign products that consumers want, that are affordable, that are recyclable, and that pose no hazard at the end of their useful lives.
