New 2010 E-Waste Recycling Laws
So far, 23 states have passed legislation mandating statewide e-waste recycling in, including several in 2010 (in yellow below). All laws except California use the Producer Responsibility approach, where the manufacturers must pay for recycling. This means that 61% of the population of the U.S. is now covered by a state e-waste recycling law. Generally, the scope of products covered by legislation is getting broader, with more recent laws including more products including printers, faxes, and other devices.
