MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources says Wisconsin's electronic recycling program is rolling.
The E-Cycle Wisconsin program came out of a 2009 state law that requires electronic manufacturers to fund a recycling program for homes and schools' old televisions, computers, monitors and other electronics. The program got under way in January 2010.
According to DNR figures, registered collectors took in 10.4 million pounds of old televisions, computers and other electronics during the first six months of 2010. Over the year that ended this past June collectors took in 35.1 million pounds.
Collection sites are located in 68 of the state's 72 counties. A list is available on the DNR's website.
