 #### CalRecycle Public Notice: Proposed Emergency Regulatory Action on Electronic Waste Recycling Fee Amounts 14 CCR 18660.40 ####


The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) is proposing to file emergency regulations with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) to adjust the electronic waste recycling fee from the current rates of $3, $4, and $5 to $5, $6, and $7.  These changes will be reflected in California Code of Regulations, title 14, section 18660.40. 


The proposed regulations were approved by the director of CalRecycle on July 20, 2016, after a public meeting.  A copy of the signed request for approval, the proposed rulemaking language, and other supporting documents can be found at the CalRecycle Public Notice website:
http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Actions/PublicNoticeDetail.aspx?id=1850&aiid=1676


CalRecycle is required to take this action to fulfill Public Resources Code 42464(f).  CalRecycle anticipates filing the proposed emergency regulations with OAL on or before September 9, 2016, pursuant to the authority granted in Public Resources Code 42475.2.  OAL will have 10 days to review the filing before final approval.  The fee changes will take effect January 1, 2017.
