In recent posts on her Zero To Go blog, Sarah Womer introduces the E-waste dumpster now at the Beacon Transfer Station and then revisits the dumpster with concerns about the handling of that material and the ultimate fate of this material.

The Zero To Go site has a wealth of information and recommendations for the recycling of E-Waste and other forms of waste too.  It’s worth checking out.
