The Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts 
released a consultation paper on a National Waste Policy, 7 April 
2009 <http://www.environment.gov.au/wastepolicy/>.

The paper is 62 pages long in a 397 Kbyte PDF or 1.3 Mb RTF file. The 
paper has 19 references to "e-waste": electronic waste as from 
computers and telecommunications equipment. Section 10 of the report 
asks: "What, if any, changes are needed to the way e-waste is 
managed?" and points out that some local governments have e-waste collections.

I have extracted the e-waste section of the report and turned it into
