Federal Computer Recycling Bill
This is the third time, but you never know . . . it might go through this time. Representatives Thompson (CA) and Slaughter (NY) introduced the National Computer Recycling Act. If would add $10 to the cost of each computer to fund recycling efforts. Manufacturers with existing recycling programs (i.e., Dell) would be exempt from the fee. ExtremeTech has a good article with pros and cons of this possible legislation.
