Paying for E-Waste- The Growing Concern of Electronics Recyclin
As the hunger for consumer electronics accelerates in 21st century society, so does the question of what to do with these products when they are old and broken. Electronics recycling bills recently introduced at state and federal government levels are trying to create a solution, but at the heart of the debate over these propositions, a central question exists: Who is going to pay for it?
Disposing of electronics isn't as easy as tossing old shoes or recycling a bottle; they often contain perfectly reusable or, conversely, toxic elements that require special handling. Most consumers are often unaware of this, but watchdog and government groups are paying closer attention
to "e-waste." In some cases, this could affect the dealer.
