The General Services Administration is expected to release a new electronic waste disposal policy for government contractors, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The policy will require contractors to dispose e-waste through federal-approved recyclers and prohibit them from dumping computers and other electronics in landfills.

The GSA’s motive is to prevent e-waste toxins from entering the environment, according to the Journal.

The new policy is expected to be released within 90 days.

Earlier this month, the Government Accountability Office recommended the government implement a new federal electronic waste disposal policy.

The GSA also has recently implemented a federal ban on agencies from incinerating and displacing old electronics in landfills.
