Documents Supporting Registration in the Electronic Waste Recycling Act's Manufacturer Take-Back Program

The California Integrated Waste Management Board (now CalRecycle) has adopted regulations to implement portions of landmark legislation that established a funding system for the collection and recycling of certain electronic wastes. Prospective participants must be approved prior to participation.

This application form (CIWMB 202) is to be used by manufacturers intending to participate in the Covered Electronic Waste (CEW) Payment System - Manufacturer Payments (CCR Title 14, Division 7, Chapter 8.2) established pursuant to the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (Chapter 526, Statutes of 2003).

Note: This application can be completed electronically using the text fields prior to printing; however it may not be submitted electronically and must be mailed or delivered to CalRecycle. Interested parties should review all requirements within the regulations and comply with any and all federal, state and local laws and regulations.

Note: No payments will be made for activities conducted prior to registration approval.

Additional forms relating to payment requests and material tracking will be available soon.

Other Related Resources and Forms:

  • Updated Revised information on notifying DTSC of Intent to handle CRTs and/or UWEDs
    Any entity handling a minimum threshold of discarded cathode ray tubes (CRT) or universal waste electronic devices (UWED) in California is required to notify DTSC, regardless of whether they are participating in the SB 20 payment system. Information on the process is available from this DTSC's website, including an informative fact sheet. Please note that, depending on a handler's activities, other DTSC requirements may apply.
  • Updated Payee Data Record, Std.204
    This form is used by State agencies to prepare information returns (Form 1099) and is required as part of a manufacturer's registration application to participate in the take-back payment system

As CalRecycle, in consultation with the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), works to implement this important legislation, more information will be available through this website. Note that any guidance provided by the CalRecycle should not substitute for careful reading of the original statute or subsequent regulations.
