Summary as introduced:
Electronic equipment recycling program. Requires the Department of Environmental Quality to adopt regulations to provide for an electronic equipment recycling program. The bill requires the program to work with local governments and businesses in determining how to recycle electronic equipment and to promote recycling and donating electronic equipment. The bill also requires the Department, by July 1, 2004, to develop a list of electronic equipment and organizations that accept it for donation or recycling. Beginning July 1, 2004, the bill bans the disposal of cathode ray tubes in mixed solid waste, prohibits solid waste management facilities from accepting cathode ray tubes, and only allows disposal of cathode ray tubes in accordance with the Department’s regulations. For purposes of this bill, “cathode ray tube” means an intact glass tube used to provide the visual display in televisions, computer monitors, oscilloscopes and similar scientific equipment, and “electronic equipment” means devices that contain complex circuitry, circuit boards or signal processing, and that contain hazardous materials that may pose a risk to public health or the environment if discarded as part of mixed solid waste or disposed of in a solid waste management facility. Electronic equipment includes, but is not limited to, cathode ray tubes, computers, televisions and cell phones. This bill is incorporated into HB 2376.
