Xinhua: Electronic waste poses mounting challenge

From Xinhua Online:

China will soon have its first regulation to deal with the mounting problem of electronic waste.

As China emerges as a major global manufacturing and consumer powerhouse, discarded electronics products and household appliances, many filled with toxic chemicals, are piling up, posing a severe threat to the environment and sustainable economic growth.

Ministry of Information Industry (MII) official Huang Jianzhong said the regulation would be published before the end of the year.
