Changing electronic waste recycling debated in New Jersey

Private recycling companies and municipal and county recycling program officials are asking legislators to make changes to a state law that directs how worn out television sets and computers are collected and recycled.

Manufactures of the electronic products, who bear the financial responsibility for the New Jersey's mandatory recycling program, argue that it is working adequately and should be allowed to mature to meet evolving market conditions.

Both sides will make their cases today at noon before the Senate Environment and Energy Committee which will meet in Committee Room 10, Third Floor, State House Annex in Trenton.

The testimony will focus on Senate Bill S-2973.
