Compulsory e-waste scheme? Yes, please

Good on Cr Paul Bruce for this remit to Local Government New Zealand to lobby the government to introduce a scheme to ensure that we pay for the cost of recycling our e-waste when we buy a product. Completely in keeping with the Waste Management Act which the Greens introduced. It won't put up the cost too much, maybe around $20 on a $400 purchase.

It must be easy to drop off these goods, will be interested to see how this would work througout the country.
