Legislative Update:

Electronic Waste Bill is Signed into Law!

As many of you already know from my travels around to your group meetings,
the E-Waste bill has now been signed into law. For those of you who may
not have heard yet, this is a huge victory for Illinois, and one that ISEC
students played a significant role in securing. Here's the story:

Electronic waste (E-Waste) is the fastest growing component of the solid
waste stream as people look to dispose of their computers, printers,
televisions and other electronics equipment. Most of it winds up in
landfills, where toxic parts of the electronics equipment can leach and
contaminate drinking water supplies.
