Computer and Electronics Recycling

computer recycling, electronics recycling, recycling law

On September 1, 2010 a new electronics recycling law will take effect that prohibits the disposal of various electronic devices such as computers, monitors, printers, televisions, VCRs, DVD players and cell phones in Wisconsin landfills.  The new program called E-Cycle Wisconsin is administered by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and establishes a system for electronics from households and public schools to be collected and recycled.

Many electronics contain harmful materials including mercury, lead and cadmium that are released into the air, water and soil if landfilled, incinerated or illegally dumped.  Electronics contain valuable, reusable materials like glass, metal and plastic that can be recycled for new products.  Reusing these valuable materials lessens environmental impacts by reducing the need for new materials.
