No More E Waste
For those of you that missed it, today's the day. After today a state law takes effect that bans the direct dumping of many kinds of e- waste into landfills. So, no more dumping those AA batteries directly into the trash can.
It doesn't really bother me much, if at all. I suppose we should be trying to keep toxic metals from leaching into the environment. I just wonder how big a threat that really is with e- waste. Might this be another case of environmentalist hype as we see with global warming and other supposed crises? I don't know, but I've always hated to see so many things thrown away when they might have material recovered from them. As long as it doesn't cost too much.
