U.S. state legislatures enacted approximately 67 recycling-related bills in 2004, including 11 electronics bills, seven mercury measures and seven packaging laws.
Details on what passed, as well as what to expect in 2005, will be explained at a teleconference January 27, 2005, at 2:00 p.m. (EST) organized by Raymond Communications, publisher of State Recycling Laws Update.
Publisher Michele Raymond will provide an overview of what bills passed in the last 12 months and an outlook for enforcement of various packaging and electronics laws for 2005. She will also review the status of Canadian legislation.
She will be joined by Ric Erdheim, director of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), who will explain the status of all state mercury legislation for 2005, with an insider’s outlook.
This is part of a series of teleconferences on key topics from Raymond Communications. China’s new WEEE/RoHS will be covered at a Feb 7 teleconference.
The next regular Take it Back! Conference will be held March 7-9 2005 in Alexandria, Virginia.
