Ban on eWaste export
As we know, most of the eTrash produced in the US is not dealt with in the country, but exported to third world countries for "recycling". Which means electronics are produced in China, shipped to the US to be used for an increasingly shorter period, and then shipped back to China to drop it into a landfill. Yeah, that makes sense...
Now there is a new legislative proposal introduced to ban the export of eWaste. Read here for more details.
