Connecticut’s Electronics Recycling Law
In July of 2007, the State of Connecticut was one of the first in a growing list of states that adopted an Electronics Recycling Law concerning the recycling of household electronic waste (e-waste). This law enables Connecticut to better manage an ever-growing portion of the solid waste stream. Under this e-waste law, residents will have convenient and free opportunities to recycle their computers, printers, televisions and monitors; and manufacturers will finance the transportation and recycling of them. Retailers will be required to inform their customers about electronics recycling options, and will only be allowed to sell these products from manufacturers that have registered with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). There will also be a disposal ban on these devices as of January 1, 2011.
The DEEP will continue to provide updated information through its website to all participants (residents, municipalities, manufacturers, recyclers, retailers) on the details of the state-wide electronics recycling program as it becomes available. Follow the links below to learn more.
