Here is a great New Year’s Resolution for Pennsylvania recommended by PennFuture:

Enact mandatory recycling of electronic gadgets and computers. There is nothing to prevent people from simply dumping electronic gadgets, computers and televisions into landfills, even though many are classified as hazardous waste and often contain toxic materials. Legislation being considered by the House and Senate will protect our environment and grow Pennsylvania’s green economy. The proposed law requires the manufacturers of electronics to arrange for them to be responsibly recycled, usually bylocal e-cycling businesses. Enacting e-cycling legislation will be yet another win for the economy and the environment.

Contact your state legislator to make sure that Pennsylvania adopts the right resolutions!
