Cathode Ray Tube and Electronics Waste Recycling
Purpose of legislation
Requires the Virginia Waste Management Board to adopt regulations to encourage cathode ray tube and electronics recycling. The bill also authorizes localities to prohibit the disposal of cathode ray tubes in any privately operated landfill within its jurisdiction, so long as the locality has implemented a recycling program that is capable of handling all cathode ray tubes generated within the jurisdiction. EPA is considering regulatory changes that would make it easier to recycle these waste streams. Once completed, Virginia will have to incorporate into its hazardous waste regulations.
