Intel Costa Rica seeks to develop a system to manage computer scrap and its disposal in Costa Rica effectively. Through interviews and surveys of individuals and organizations that potentially may become involved with E-waste management, we researched Costa Rica's current situation concerning computer waste. We developed two recycling models as part of a comprehensive implementation plan. The long-term objective of this plan is to develop local recycling capabilities to manage the E-waste generated by Costa Rica and possibly neighboring countries.
