CTL Executive Will Speak on E-Waste Recycling

Portland, Ore., October 2, 2007

Erik Stromquist, executive vice president of Portland-based CTL Corporation, will address the growing e-waste issue at International CES 2008, the largest consumer technology trade event in the world.

Stromquist, whose firm offers free recycling to its customers, will participate in a panel session entitled Keeping CE off the Curb. The session will be held on Tuesday, January 8, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, in Room N 255-257, North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. It will cover the e-waste management programs that manufacturers such as CTL offer, and how retailers and government agencies can implement such programs as well.

“I’m pleased that CES has chosen to address the topic of electronic waste this year,” Stromquist said. “It’s important that the industry as a whole understands the true impact that e-waste has on the environment. This increased awareness means that more manufacturers, sellers and users will begin to consider actions they can take to minimize electronic waste.”

Stromquist said CTL provides a coupon with each new computer, monitor and television it sells, allowing buyers to return these products for free whenever they choose to purchase new models. The products are de-manufactured and safely disposed of through Retronics, CTL’s recycling business unit. Since opening in 2004, Retronics has safely and responsibly recycled more than 1,000,000 lbs. of electronic waste.
