The state of North Carolina enacted legislation that bans disposing of electronic waste or E-Waste into North Carolina landfills. E-waste laws have come into effect in North Carolina, requiring manufacturers to offer recycling for electronics, and barring computers and televisions from curbside collections.

The regulations are designed to keep hazardous materials such as cadmium and mercury out of soil and water, and to divert useful materials to the recycling industry.
