[greenyes] E-Waste - Maryland Style

Maryland Adopts Computer-Recycling Fee

Starting next year, computer makers that want to do business in Maryland
must kick in up to $5,000 annually to help recycle their products under a
new state law designed to cope with the roughly 60,000 tons of "electronic
waste" that pile up in Maryland each year.
The law, signed last month by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R), affects only
makers of desktop and laptop computers, including monitors, but it hints at
expanding to include television sets in the near future.
