Australia's National Television and Computer Product Stewardship Scheme

The Australian government is about to start consultation on a national product stewardship regulatory framework for e-waste - it's not the whole solution (which is to address ever-increasing demand), but it will go a long way to recovering materials like coltan, rare earth minerals.

This law would demand that companies, importers and manufacturers of TVs, computers and related technology finance/operate a national collection and recycling scheme under product-stewardship legislation, designed to encourage manufacturers to recover & recycle more resources contained in products sent to landfill.
