Bloomberg Vows To Veto Electronics Recycling Bill
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he will veto the City Council’s bill requiring electronics manufacturers to be in charge of recycling their products and would not enforce the law if his veto is overridden, AP reports.
The measure passed this week by the council requires electronics makers to develop recycling programs to handle all the electronic products they make.
Bloomberg said that the bill places an unfair burden on product makers to control what happens to it years later.
If Bloomberg’s veto were overridden, the administration could, as Bloomberg says it will, decide not to enforce the law.
Earlier this year, The New York City Council passed a bill requiring large stores and retail chains to collect and recycle plastic bags.
