House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: June 14, 2017 03:50 PM
From: Representative Christopher B. Quinn
To: All House members
Subject: Electronics Recycling System

As you know, our electronics recycling system has not kept pace with the changing electronics consumer markets, leaving many with few options for recycling televisions and computers across the Commonwealth. In an effort to restart the conversation of addressing this issue, I will be reintroducing former Representative Chris Ross's House Bill 1900 from the 2015-16 session.

This legislation allows private contractors to bid on collecting, transporting and recycling the excess amount of electronic waste in each county not currently being covered by the existing system. All associated with contracts under this proposal would be apportioned to the manufacturers on the same market share basis currently being used in the existing law.

Please consider co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1736
