RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina landfalls could accept computers and televisions again in legislation advancing at the General Assembly.

The ban's removal is contained in the annual "regulatory reform" bill run by Republicans and approved Thursday by a Senate committee.

There's the pile of old electronics that got replaced with the newest version over the holidays.  The  toaster that no longer works, and the dead computer that's been collecting dust for years.  Random items that shouldn’t go in the trash, and can’t go into the recycling bin.  Items Eric Bradford says fall into the hard to recycle category.

The North Carolina General Assembly is considering a catch-all regulatory reform bill that would, among other things, end the ban on dumping electronics in landfills, allow sales of pet turtles, and let local distilleries sell online.
