Which is why it was odd that Governor LePage wanted to review and potentially dismantle the state's e-waste law, or least the part that requires manufacturers to pay their share.
"That would be a huge disincentive to do the right thing with [these products]," Moon says, explaining that the cost would have to either absorbed into the city budget or passed back to consumers.
Luckily, LePage dropped the e-waste provision from his long list of proposed regulation reforms earlier this week. But there's a good chance it could come back in different legislation. I'm glad I got rid of that TV this week.
