St. Louis program encourages e-waste recycling

In an effort to encourage electronics recycling in St. Louis, local governments, community organizations and businesses in the city have launched “E-cycle St. Louis,” an initiative designed to develop ways to manage e-waste. According to an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the program, which is the first of its kind in the city, urges residents to recycle their electronic equipment at 10 sites throughout the city. Residents can bring obsolete items such as cell phones and computer monitors to the sites. In addition to the collection sites, educational materials and a Web site have been created to promote the program.
