Environmental activists and more than two dozen recycling companies have created a certification program designed to curtail the export and improper disposal of toxic electronic waste.

e-Stewards is an independently-audited program in which certified recyclers promise that computers, monitors cell phones and other e-waste will not be dumped in local landfills, exported to foreign countries, or handled by prison labor.
