Electronics Waste Recycling Passes the Senate; Now It's On To The House

Late today, a bipartisan majority (41-8) in the Senate passed SB6428, the E-Waste Recycling Bill, which is one of the environmental community's four Priorities for a Healthy Washington.  (And, no I'm not talking about the "e-waste" that comes from Goldy's comment threads.)

Next, it's on to the House, where the bill is HB2662, and  we'll have to push back a full-court lobbying press from the electronics industry.  If you'd like to send your legislators a message in support of e-waste recycling, you can do it at:
