Enacted in July of 2007, to give Connecticut residents ways to properly recycle certain electronic devices, this meets the January 1, 2011 banning covered electron devices from being disposed of in the trash. The Commission extends its appreciation to TAKE II for its recognized reputation as a leading e-cycle company and for working with towns and groups in the interests of proper electronics disposal.
Recycled materials are collectively referred to as electronic waste or "e-waste" and are one of the fastest growing portions of our waste stream. As new electronic equipment enters the market these devices, computers in particular will increasingly become accumulated and stored. For every new product that is is sold to consumers, one or more becomes outdated intensifying waste nationally.
Careful disposal is critical and important because many electronic products contain hazardous parts. Reportedly, monitors and televisions can contain leaded glass and beryllium, mercury, cadmium, nickel, zinc, silver and gold also cadmium can be found in batteries and mercury can be present in relays and switches.
The Windsor Conservation and TAKE II encourage citizens to take advantage of this opportunity to lighten up your home and responsibly dispose of outdated or unused electronics.
