AB 3001 (Pavley, 2005-06) Toxic Computer Recycling - Support

Expands scope of the 2003 SB 20 E-waste Recycling ARF law to include Personal Computers

AB 3001 was put on hold in the Assembly Appropriations Suspense File in 2006.

In 2003, the legislature adopted SB 20 (Sher), the E-waste Recycling Act, which established a $6-10 advanced recycling fee on all Covered Electronic Devices (CEDs). Under current CED definition, only CRT-containing devices, including computers and monitors, LCD televisions and monitors, and plasma TVs are covered. AB 3001 will extend this law to include all personal computers that contain Computer Processing Units (CPUs), which consumers will pay a $6 recycling fee.
