Electronic Recycling Gets Political
Thursday, February 21, 2008
The New York City Council recently passed a new electronic recycling bill. Mayor Bloomberg called it "illegal" and threatened to veto or simply ignore the bill if it becomes law. Councilmember Bill de Blasio (District 39 - D), co-sponsor of the bill, and Robert Lang, director of Waste Provention, Reuse, and Recycling for New York City Department of Sanitation, discuss the controversy.
