Governor Quinn signed Senate Bill 2106 (P.A. 97-0287) on August 10. Under the new law e- recycling requirements will now cover keyboards, fax machines, videocassette recorders, portable music players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digitial converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, and small-scale servers. The statute also requirers manufacturers to recycle at 40% of the total weight of the electronic devices sold in that category in program year 2012 and 50% in program year 2013 and beyond.
