    I have recently become aware of the growing problem of e-waste and am very dissapointed to see that the class has already taken place. I am trying to gather as much information on the subject as possible and would like to know if there is a repeat of the lecture or if there are any other classes on a similar topic scheduled.

    Noah – The best way to stay informed of city of Dallas public education classes is to review the Office of Environmental Quality’s monthly newsletter found on the Green Dallas website (http://www.greendallas.net/). For other info/public courses I would simply search the subject e-waste online. I found an article by WIRED mag (E-Waste: Dark Side of the Digital Age) and various gov’t agency sites with more info. I hope this helps! ~Peter
