In Maine, there's a new law requiring manufacturers of televisions, computers and appliances, to pay the cost of sorting and recycling the products they sell. The management of discarded electronic equipment ("e-waste") - which contain toxic materials and are costly to recycle - is a growing problem across the nation. This law, the first of its kind in the United States, is designed to encourage companies to build products that are easier to recycle.
