Indiana e-waste collectors, recyclers face deadline

December 3, 2009

The clock is ticking for Indiana's electronic waste collectors and recyclers to enroll in a new program intended to reduce the amount of electronic waste that ends up in the state's landfills.

Collectors and recyclers of obsolete electronics have until Jan. 1 to enroll with the state's E-Waste Program created by a law passed by the General Assembly this year.

That law specifies that only collectors and recyclers enrolled in the program can work with electronics manufacturers who will soon be responsible for collecting and recycling the devices they sell in the state.

Makers of computer monitors, laptops, and televisions must register with the state by April 1, 2010. If they fail to do so, they won't be allowed to sell their products in Indiana.
