Landfill Ban on Electronics: What Recyclers (Collectors) Need to Know

Senate Bill 398, passed during the 2010 legislative session, prohibits the land filling of covered electronic devices (CEDs) in West Virginia landfills beginning January 1, 2011.

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.

While collectors of recyclable materials have no specific requirements under this legislation, they are encouraged to consider adding electronics to their list of acceptable recyclable items, where practicable.

Grant funds may be available for the purpose of initiating new electronics recycling programs. For information on recycling grant programs visit http://www.dep.wv.gov/dlr/reap/Pages/default.aspx.
