Electronic Recyclers of America (ERA) announced today that a KPBS documentary news segment on electronic waste produced by popular San Diego television news magazine “Full Focus” will air Monday, February 27th at 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. and again Tuesday, February 28th at 12:30 p.m. ERA is featured prominently in the segment as an example of the correct and legal method for disposing of electronic waste such as computer monitors and old television sets.
Topics discussed include the current state of electronic waste in California and ERA’s efforts to help curb the glut of accumulated e-waste in the most environmentally sound manner possible. For the segment, a “Full Focus” reporter toured ERA’s San Diego area location.
“We are excited to be profiled by a trustworthy news source such as KPBS,” said John S. Shegerian, ERA’s President and CEO. “It’s important that the word gets out to as many people as possible about the problems caused by electronic waste and how California has truly stepped up and taken an active role that is now inspiring other states to do the same. ERA is at the forefront of helping the state with this effort and we exist to be certain that potentially hazardous electronic waste does not end up in our landfills and water sources. Educating the public is so important, and programs like ‘Full Focus’ do just that.”
KPBS-TV’s “Full Focus” is a daily television news program dedicated to probing issues of the day with attention to thoughtful, in-depth analysis.
