School electronics recycling through E-cycle Wisconsin

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Does your school have electronics to recycle? If so, check out the E-Cycle Wisconsin program. It’s designed to help publicly funded schools recycle electronics.

Wisconsin’s electronics recycling law of 2010 banned many types of electronic devices from landfill and incinerator disposal and created E-Cycle Wisconsin. E-Cycle Wisconsin takes a product stewardship approach to electronics recycling. Each year, manufacturers of products covered by the 2010 law must pay for electronics to be recycled. This funding makes it easier for schools to recycle old electronics. The E-Cycle Wisconsin website provides helpful information such as links to publications on how to choose a responsible recycler and a list of registered recyclers and collectors. The website also provides class activities to educate kids about recycling electronics.

For more information on how you can take advantage of the services provided by the E-Cycle Wisconsin program, visit the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website at http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/ecycle/schools.html
