DEP ENGAGES PUBLIC IN DEVELOPMENT OF E-WASTE RECYCLING RULES

 

The Electronic Waste Management Act bans the disposal of televisions and all personal or portable computers - including desktop, notebook and laptop computers, as well as computer monitors - in the regular waste stream beginning January 1, 2011.  It requires manufacturers of these devices to establish and finance a free system for collecting and recycling this waste, known as electronic waste or e-waste.

 

The law does not cover cell phones, DVD players, VCRs, game consoles or electronic devices such as radios or TVs found in automobiles, although some county and municipal programs, nonprofit community service agencies and businesses that sell electronic devices do collect these.

 

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON E-WASTE CALL HUNTERDON COUNTY @ 908 788-1110
