GLRPPR Sector Resource: Connecticut Public Act No. 07-189

Title:
Connecticut Public Act No. 07-189

Abstract:
In July of 2007, the State of Connecticut adopted a new law concerning the recycling of household electronics. Codified at sections 22a-629 through 22a-640 of the Connecticut General Statutes, this law enables Connecticut to manage an ever-growing portion of the solid waste stream. According to EPA, electronic waste (E-waste) grew by almost 8% from 2004-2005. Only a small percentage of residential electronics generated in Connecticut is recycled. Under the new E-waste law, residents will have convenient and free opportunities for recycling their computers, televisions and monitors.
