Many electronic products become outdated within a short period of time. As a result, more and more electronic products, also known as "e-waste," are disposed of in landfills. E-waste improperly disposed of in a landfill has the potential to impact people, animals and land.


To avoid these risks, the Electronic Waste Recycling Act (Senate Bill 50) established and funded a program for consumers to return, recycle and ensure safe and environmentally sound disposal of covered electronic devices.

Examples of Electronic Waste ("e-waste")

  • Televisions
  • Computers and Monitors
  • Telephones
  • Fax Machines
  • Printers
  • Cell Phones
