ELECTRONICS, BATTERIES, ETC. RECYCLING

 

A new electronics recycling law went into effect January 1, 2010.  The new E-Cycle Wisconsin program was established to collect and recycle certain electronic devices.  The goal is to conserve valuable resources, prevent pollution, and encourage an expansion of Wisconsin's recycling industry.
