    SPOKANE -- If you have old electronics collecting dust at home there's a free
    and green way in Washington now to get rid of all that unwanted clutter.

    Many of the electronics people use on a daily basis contain lead and mercury
    making it harmful to just toss them into a landfill. That's why a new state law
    requires makers of televisions, computers, laptops, and monitors to provide free
    e-cycling facilities.

    SEATTLE - A new state law that helps you get rid of your old electronics for
    free is hurting charities.

    Charities can no longer fix up old equipment to reuse it, but a brand new

    throw away hundreds of computers that could be put to good use.

KNDO/KNDU Tri-Cities, Yakima, WA | Why Do Some E-Cycling Drop-Off Spots Cost Money? - 0 views

    Our newsroom has received a number of calls and e-mails asking why if the
    State Department of Ecology is promoting free e-cycling, some people are being
    asked to pay anywhere from $5-15.

    We hopped online to the Department of Ecology's website.
    It turns
    stores like Staples and Office Depot charge you money for what's called
    a drop-off box; you buy a box and can fill it with electronic recyclables.

    We talked to Office Depot, and they tell us they charge the money for shipping
    and the state's new ecology law does not affect them.
