Recycling of cell phones.  Requires a retailer selling a cell phone to have in place by July 1, 2007, a system of acceptance and collection of used cell phones for reuse, recycling, or proper disposal. The bill requires the recycling system to include specific elements. Under the bill, on and after July 1, 2007, any cell phone retailer who sells a cell phone to a consumer without complying with the provisions of the bill may be subject to a civil penalty of up to $1,000. The Department of Environmental Quality is required on July 1, 2008, and each July 1 thereafter, to post on its website an estimated Virginia recycling rate for cell phones. The bill also calls for state agencies that purchase or lease cell phones to require prospective bidders to certify that they have complied with the recycling requirements.
