Responsible Management of Electronic Waste In West Virginia
Senate Bill 398

During the 2010 legislative session, Senate Bill 398 passed into law. The bill bans certain electronics from West Virginia landfills. The bill requires the WV Solid Waste Management Board to design a program for the proper handling of covered electronic devices (CEDs). The Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is required to promulgate rules for the implementation of the enforcement of the program.

 

CEDs include televisions, computers or video display devices with a screen that is greater than four inches measured diagonally. "Covered electronic device" does not include a video display device that is part of a motor vehicle, or that is contained within a household appliance or commercial, industrial or medical equipment.

For the full text of the bill click “Landfill Ban on E-Waste”.

These meetings involved landfill representatives, waste haulers, recyclers, retailers, WV Solid Waste Management Board, WV Department of Environmental Protection and the Public Service Commission of West Virginia.

Electronics Recycling

The Solid Waste Management Board urges businesses and individuals to recycle end-of-life electronics. There are a growing number of businesses, non-profits and governmental entities involved in electronics recycling.

Many of the state’s solid waste authorities collect electronics for recycling either through one or two day collection events or ongoing activities. Pending events are listed under the “Pending Collection Events” link.

 

For businesses and non-profits providing electronics recycling services click the “WV Recycling Directory” or the “Earth 911 Recycling Directory” links at the top of the page.
