(b) An approved recycler shall not use or propose cancellation methods that are inconsistent with any DTSC requirements for handling or otherwise processing CEWs.

(c) An approved recycler may use the following standard CEW cancellation methods that qualify for recycling payments as specified in the requirements of this Chapter:

(1) CRT or CRT-containing CEW cancellation through crushing or shredding.

(2) CRT or CRT-containing CEW cancellation through dismantling to a bare CRT after relieving the vacuum.

(3) Cancellation of non-CRT-containing CEWs through crushing/shredding of the entire CEW.

(4) Cancellation of non-CRT-containing CEWs through dismantling to a bare panel.

(d) An approved recycler may submit proposals for alternative cancellation methods to CalRecycle for review on a case-by-case basis. CalRecycle, in consultation with DTSC, shall act within 180 calendar days to disapprove an alternative method, approve an alternative method for use only by the requesting recycler, or approve an alternative method for use by all recyclers.

(e) An approved recycler shall not claim, and CalRecycle shall not pay, recycling payments for CEWs “cancelled” with an alternative method unless CalRecycle has previously approved the alternative method. CalRecycle shall deny payment on any CEWs “cancelled” with an alternative method prior to CalRecycle approval.

(f) Reuse of either an intact CEW or of a partially disassembled CEW, such as a CRT with an attached yoke, is not cancellation and is not eligible for recycling payments.
