“Computer equipment contains environmentally hazardous waste and should be disposed of properly.” That’s the official word from the state of North Carolina. They have followed up that ominous talk by enacting a state law that bans TVs and computer equipment from being dumped into any landfills in North Carolina. They haven’t left the citizens high and dry when it comes to getting rid of personal e-waste. You can drop off your e-waste at a few certifies centers around Raleigh but there are restrictions.
For instance, here’s what they will accept: “laptop computers (working or broken), flat-screen LCD monitors (working), desktop computers (dual core or faster, working or broken), rechargeable batteries under 2 lbs., laptop batteries, cell phones and cell phone batteries.”
However the list of what they won’t take is a bit longer: “broken flat-screen LCD monitors, CRT monitors, TVs, desktop computers (P4 or older), printers, faxes, copiers or scanners.” What happens if you want to get rid of that stuff?
