In early 2012, the city completed a series of mandatory audits of universal and electronic waste procedures at various agency facilities. The audit was required under a 2009 EPA consent order related to universal and electronic waste regulations. The links below can be used to learn about what an agency's responsibilities were under the program.
Going forward, agencies are encouraged to implement a systematic audit process for facilities where agency personnel are responsible for handling spent lighting and/or electronic waste. The links below can be used to plan your agency's program.
