New Ban On The Disposal Of Electronics

WEST VIRGINIA....
Beginning Saturday, a new ban on the disposal of electronic equipment in West Virginia landfills will prohibit televisions, computers and electronic devices with video screens 4 inches and larger from being put in landfills. The Legislature approved the ban earlier this year.

Since 2002, the state Solid Waste Management Board has been working since 2002 to divert electronic scrap from landfills through various collection efforts. The board says 7.3 million pounds of electronic scrap has been collected through various collection drives in the past eight years.
