Province launches electronic recycling

From The Telegram:

“The Multi-Materials Stewardship Board (MMSB) has partnered with Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) to launch a provincewide, eco-friendly initiative Thursday that will see a wide range of electronic products being accepted by recycling depots, including radios, desktop and laptop computers, camcorders and televisions.

Newfoundland and Labrador is the ninth province to implement such a program, leaving New Brunswick as the final province without end-of-life electronic recycling, also known as e-waste. Two provinces, Ontario and Alberta, have their own independent recycling programs while EPRA manages the other seven.

In November 2012 the provincial government made amendments to the waste management regulations to include an “industry-led electronics recycling plan.” This amendment will see stricter guidelines for electronics and will hopefully prevent improper disposal of such devices.”
