Wisconsin's E-Cycle Law
Wisconsin's electronics recycling law, 2009 Wisconsin Act 50, covers two categories of electronics: covered electronic devices and eligible electronic devices. In addition, the law bans the landfilling and incineration of eligible electronic devices (EEDs) and cell phones as of September 1, 2010. These bans apply no matter where the devices are from or who used them, including households, schools, businesses, governments, and institutions. Specifically, the bans include:
  • Cell phones
  • Computer monitors
  • Computers (i.e., desktop, laptop, netbook, and tablet computers) and computer accessories (i.e., keyboards, mice, speakers, external hard drives, and flash drives)
  • Desktop printers (including those that scan, fax, and/or copy)
  • DVD players, VCRs, and other video players (i.e., DVRs)
  • Fax machines
  • Televisions

For information on recycling electronics, contact the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources at 608-266-2111 or visit their website.
