Pratt County Weighs Mandatory Electronics Recycling

PRATT, Kan.  -  Officials in a south-central Kansas county are considering whether to require mandatory recycling of old computers and other electronic devices.
The Pratt County landfill is approaching its daily 20-ton capacity, with up to 17 tons a day being dumped there.
The County Commission this week discussed whether residents should have to take so-called "e-waste" to the county's recycling center, as an alternative to expanding the landfill. Pratt County residents already have the option of leaving electronics at the recycling center without charge.
Commissioners noted that it's more convenient for residents to haul all items to the landfill. But Commissioner Gina Borho says even if there's never 100% compliance with a recycling rule, it's still worth trying.
