CALPIA signs deal with CDCR to pick up e-Waste

Inside CDCRThe California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the California Prison Industry Authority (CALPIA) to collect electronic waste (e-Waste) from CDCR institutions and offices.

Free pickups are now available by appointment through CALPIA.

According to CDCR, many institutions have stockpiles of e-Waste that either need to be disposed of, refurbished, or recycled in a responsible manner. This includes computer equipment, televisions, communications systems, power supplies, printers and more.

For a complete list of collectable items, go to http://www.calpia.ca.gov/E-Waste/E-Waste.pdf.

CALPIA is using its statewide transportation system through its existing routes to pick up e-Waste from customers free-of-charge. To arrange a pickup, call (916) 229-3096, or email ewaste@calpia.ca.gov .

CALPIA is providing a convenient disposal system while training offender-participants to be certified e-Waste handlers upon parole.

CDCR Free-Venture participants are also earning industry certifications by refurbishing computers for CDCR re-use.

CALPIA’s E-waste Program utilizes female offenders from the Folsom Women’s Facility who are enrolled in CALPIA’s Career Technical Education (CTE) program to sort the e-Waste. continue reading...
