New State Law: Electronics Recycling

January 4, 2012

As of January 1st, municipalities can no longer pick up household electronics for disposal in landfills. This will prevent toxic chemicals from reaching the environment and will prevent useful materials from taking up space in waste disposal facilities. The system for recycling electronics partners retailers and government, and will provide free or low-cost ways to safely discard these materials.

See this Patch.com article for full information on the new law and on how to dispose of your electronics:
