It’s always nice to be able to report a winner, in this case, a state which leads the nation in recycling electronics. Unfortunately, it’s not Texas.
Taken from a recent Resource Recycling eNewletter, we find that Vermont e-scrap officials report how the state leads the nation in per-capita collection of end-of-life electronics.
An annual report on Vermont’s e-scrap program finds the state’s per-capita collection total for the 2012-2013 fiscal year was 7.77 pounds. That’s up slightly from FY 2011-2012, which was the first year an e-scrap law was in effect in the Green Mountain state.
