E-Cycle Washington reaches 200 million pound milestone

OLYMPIA – Washington’s nationally recognized E-Cycle Washington program has achieved a milestone by collecting 200 million pounds of TVs, computers and monitors for free recycling. Two-hundred million pounds equals the weight of 361 fully loaded Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
 
It took less than five years for the statewide E-Cycle Washington program to reach the landmark 200 million pound mark by increasing collection totals each year. In 2009, the first year of collections, 38.5 million pounds were collected, but Washington consumers were just getting warmed up. The program totals kept climbing each year, and 2013 is on pace to set another one-year record estimated by the Department of Ecology (Ecology) to be 46 million pounds.
 
Washington has historically had one of the highest participation rates in the country among 25 states with similar programs. This year Washington residents will recycle approximately 6.7 pounds of electronics per person.
