Building on a Texas e-waste recycling bill passed in 2007, the Texas House is currently considering a bill which would require large computer retailers to collect consumer e-waste. Along with another bill introduced this session that would ban computer equipment from being disposed of in landfills or incinerated, the proposals have both struggled to find support in previous legislative sessions where they never made it to the floor of the State’s House of Representatives. The bill requiring computer retailers to collect e-waste is called House Bill 87. It was introduced by Rep. Mary González, a democrat representing El Paso. González also introduced the bill in the last legislative session where it did not get out of committee. She was quoted in a Houston Chronicle article as saying “I want to make sure we have policies in place so that my children and the next generation of children have a state that is still healthy.” The bill would expand on the 2007 law that requires manufacturer’s to offer free recycling for their products, by requiring large retailers such as Target and Wal-Mart to accept old electronics at no charge to consumers.
