Ecycle Press Conference photo
Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk speaks at a press conference last week in the Rotunda of the State House announcing a joint House and Senate resolution declaring April 30, 2011, as South Carolina eCycles Day. Rep. Funderburk is joined at the podium by Members of the House and Senate and recycling industry representatives.
Unwanted computers, printers, televisions, and other devices comprise one of the nation’s fastest-growing waste streams. Inspired by the concerns of several constituents, I advocated and sponsored legislation over the course of several years to address this problem. Through collaboration with other legislators, manufacturers, recyclers, and the environmental community this effort culminated in the passage of legislation in 2010 that makes South Carolina a leader in responsibly managing this waste while protecting our environment and growing our economy.
