Requirements for electronics recycling program clarified for Chatham collection centers

The Chatham County Solid Waste and Recycling Division has seen rapid growth in its new Electronics Recycling program, initiated when North Carolina banned the disposal of television and computer equipment in landfills last July. However, staff have identified safety and logistical problems that require further clarification of limits on what can be accepted at the 12 collection centers located throughout the county. The changes are effective immediately.
