Speaking at the 2012 GreenGov Symposium September 24, Robert Holcombe, director of personal property policy management in the General Services Administration announced that an upcoming agency proposed rule is expected to require that government electronic waste be sent to certified recyclers or refurbishers. A 60-day comment period will follow. The rule will facilitate donations to states and local entities, allow for the sale of functional electronics, and prohibit the bulk sale of nonfunctional federal electronic assets.
