The Denver Post – April 20, 2012
Gov. John Hickenlooper today signed a statewide ban on disposing of electronic waste in landfills.
That waste includes televisions, desk computers, laptops, disc players and other items. Cell phones are not included — under the reasoning that recycling programs already address the problem of cell phones.
The Colorado Association for Recycling and Colorado Environmental Coalition pushed the ban legislation through the statehouse this year, said Colorado Conservation Voters spokesman Chris Arend.
