Many electronic products become outdated within a short period of time.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.
