CNET: "Industry dollars will soon start flowing into pilot programs looking at the best way to handle an expected avalanche of obsolete computers and other consumer electronics products.

The Electronic Industries Alliance plans to announce on Monday that it has earmarked the funds--approximately $100,000--for a yearlong study to determine how best to collect used electronics for recycling, reuse and disposal. The grants will go to three recipients: the state of Florida, the 10-state Northeast Recycling Council, and the Environmental Protection Agency's Region III, which covers Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C."
