Bloomberg Businessweek contributor Verne Kopytoff talks with Sheila Davis, executive director for the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, about the impact of e-waste. Her nonprofit has long advocated greater recycling of computers, monitors, and printers, which contain toxic materials like cadmium, lead, and chemical fire retardants. About only a quarter of all electronic waste in the United States is recycled.
