CalRecycle has adopted regulations to implement portions of the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003. This landmark legislation established a funding system for the collection and recycling of certain electronic wastes. A key element of the Act that affects local governments is the availability of recovery and recycling payments to approved participants for certain collection and recycling activities. All parties are encouraged to familiarize themselves with both the statute and regulations.
