Oregon Senate Unanimously Passes E-Waste Bill

Date: May 29, 2007

Source: News Room

The Oregon state Senate unanimously approved an e-waste bill that essentially requires manufacturers to help fund recycling sites and collection centers for used computers, monitors and televisions. It also prohibits landfill operators from knowingly accepting such items. Senators approved the bill after backers cited statistics from the Oregon DEQ, stating that Oregonians disposed of 32,500 tons of e-waste in 2005, mostly in landfills. Minnesota passed a similar earlier this month. The measure is HB2626.
