@Hospice: Well I would say that you cannot adjust laws and procedures of the company according to user requirements. If we try to do that there will be no control at all. Best option would be to change and ask the users to follow it

@Eldredge--The funny thing is that not everybody is happy about the IRS recycling disk drives. When the Senate Finance Committee has been informed that the IRS recycled the hard drive of Lois Lerner, they complained that it will deprive investigators of the ability to forensically retrieve emails of Lois Lerner and six other employees who were being investigated regarding the targeting of conservative groups and donors.

E-waste is the fastest growing category of waste that needs immideate attention. And ewaste is growing in the Asian countries too looking at the population and how almost every individual is getting dependant on these gadgets. There is absolutely no clear mecahnism how one can dispose off the e waste. And cell phones and power cords are frequently generated ewastes. In my home we keep all the dry waste separately like paper, plastic and ewaste and we have to drive ourselves to hand it over to the recyclers. I think each electronic seller must have mechanism to take back the ewaste and they must have a tie up with the recyclers. The Governments and citizens and private players have to take equal ownership.

Fortunately, the IRS is leading by example when it comes to recyclign disk drives! Perhaps other federal agencies will follow suit.
