In Fall of 2009 I was very grateful E Waste Picture.JPGto have my hard work pay off, as one of my first pieces of legislation was signed into law, the E-Waste Recycling Bill. This legislation is important for both public health and the environment. When home electronics are not recycled, they can leach dangerous chemicals into our landfills and into our drinking water. The new E-Waste law requires manufacturers to collect and recycle certain electronic devices, including computers, TV’s and printers, and establishes recycling targets for manufacturers based on their sales. 17 other states have passed similar legislation, and I’m proud that Wisconsin has finally joined them. This bill went into effect on September 1st, 2010. E-Waste Law Takes Effect Press Release
