Below is a link is for the new NYS law that was just signed this spring, but comes into effect in April. RCRR referred to it at the tour.
“The NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act (PDF) <http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/materials_minerals_pdf/ewastelaw2.pdf> (38 kb) (Environmental Conservation Law, Article 27, Title 26), which created a new electronics recycling and takeback program in the state, was signed into law by the Governor on May 28, 2010. The new law will provide free and convenient recycling of electronic waste to most consumers in the state, including households, many small businesses and many not-for-profit corporations.”
