Electronics Recycling in West Virginia

In addition, businesses with e-waste problems can use the West Virginia Materials Exchange. It's an online venue that facilitates the business-to-business exchange of materials that are no longer needed but expensive to dispose of. Just fill out a short registration form and you can enter as many listings as you like. It just takes a few minutes and it's easy. The Exchange is offered free of charge by the West Virginia Solid Waste Management Board as a community service.

Interested in starting a recycling business? Contact the WV DEP REAP Recycling Assistance Grant Program. Funding is available to help new recycling businesses get started. It's a great way to go green. You can find information on the REAP program on the "Reap Recycling Assistance" link on this page.

Local Government

Many of the state's 50 local Solid Waste Authorities and other local government entities and nonprofit's collect electronics for recycling, either in a one or two day collection drive or the collect continuously.

If your civic minded and interested in helping the community deal with it's e-waste problems, check out the Covered Electronic Devices Grant (CED) Program. This program is operated by the Department of Environmental Protection's REAP section and distributes funding to local government entities to sponsor end-of-life electronics collection efforts. The funding for this program is collected from  manufactures who market their products in West Virginia and who pay annual registration fees to the state.

Manufactures that have approved electronics recycling programs which are available to West Virginians pay a smaller fee than those that don't. If you need to know  which manufactures are in compliance with the mandates of the program, click on the "CED Manufacture Compliance" link on this page for a list of manufactures that are in compliance with program rules.

If you are a state or local government agency, you probably have access to the services of the WV Purchasing Division. The division is prepared to help you with your e-waste needs.   www.state.wv.us/admin/purchase/phone.htm.
