E-waste collections reduce health risk

Who ever says that complex problems need complex answers? With government policy changing in 2006, e-waste has been deemed to endanger society and the environment. But this issue can be simply solved by recycling.

Since Feb. 9, common items can no longer be placed in the trash for pick-up. Items like batteries, fluorescent lamps and tubes, electronic devices and thermostats that contain mercury all must be disposed of in approved containers. An outline of this new policy can be found online at www.zerowaste.ca.gov.

E-waste is defined as all obsolete or outdated computers, televisions and other devices commonly used in offices, homes, and by people on the go.
