Cell Phone Recycling Mandatory

If arsenic in cell phones can pollute then surely banning cca wood and dealing with the waste problem is far more essential. There is enough arsenic in one 12 by 2 by 6 to kill 250 people. We have millions of board feet leaching out there. Take care everybody and please keep safe.

Governor Signs Bill Making Cell Phone Recycling Mandatory

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed legislation making California the first state to require cellular phone stores to recycle old phones.

According to the provisions of the Cell Phone Recycling Act, as of July 1, 2006, it will be illegal for a retailer to offer cell phones for sale unless the recycling service is offered.

Advocates for the new law say it could create a thriving industry for used and refurbished cell phones similar to those that already exist in Latin America in Asia.

Although a few retailers already offer recycling services, more than 95 percent of old cell phones eventually wind up in landfills. According to the authors of the bill, toxins such as arsenic, lead and mercury can leach out of circuit boards on discarded cell phones, fouling soil and water.
