E-Cycle Wisconsin Provides Easier Electronics Recycling
by Bridgette Valdez-Kogle, DNR

A new statewide electronics recycling law, passed in October 2009, is creating new recycling opportunities for Wisconsin households and schools. The law also bans many electronics from Wisconsin landfills and incinerators starting September 1, 2010.

The E-Cycle Wisconsin program, created under the laws by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), provides more electronics recycling options in many parts of the state. To find a collection site in your area, visit http://dnr.wi.gov/ecyclewisconsin.

Recycling your electronics is important because they contain valuable materials that can be recycled and reused. These materials include plastics, steel, glass and precious metals like gold and copper.

Many devices also contain dangerous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium and chemical flame retardants. If disposed of improperly, these materials can leach into the environment where they may affect human and environmental health.

"After September 1, no one in Wisconsin may put items such as TVs, computers, printers and cell phones in the trash," said Ann Coakley, director of the DNR's Waste and Materials Management Program. "Electronics are resources that are too valuable to waste, and we can help both our economy and environment by recycling them."
