Local Government Designations to Approved Collectors

Regulations governing the covered electronic waste (CEW) recovery and recycling program contain a provision that allows a Local Government to Designate an Approved Collector to act on its behalf to provide specified service to the Local Government.

On March 16, 2017, new emergency regulations became effective that modified the Designation provision. The new rules are intended to establish a clearer connection between the Local Government and the Designated Approved Collector, as well as ensure that necessary information is available for the Local Government to complete annual Form 303 reporting requirements.
