The Environmental Ministry issued a memo on Thursday with a new law in order to recycle electronic equipment.
Under the newlaw, liability will be imposed on manufacturers and importers of electronic products in Israel to fund the evacuation and treatment of waste caused by theproducts they market.
The law provides incentives for electronic equipment, in order to encourage re-use of the equipment, and to reduce the amount of waste generated from these products. The law brings other benefits such as prevention of health hazards, creating new markets,and making newjobs that will help thousands of unemployed in Israel.
