Minnesota HF 854 (S.F. No. 235): E-waste/Producer Responsibility Legislation

Abstract:This is the text of the bill recently passed in Minnesota which requires electronics manufacturers to pay for collection and recycling of electronic waste from households. The bill requires each manufacturer that sells TVs, computer monitors and laptops in Minnesota to collect and recycle an amount proportional to the weight of their products sold in the state during the previous year. They must collect 60 percent of the weight during the first program year, increasing to 80 percent thereafter. The type of products manufacturers can collect to meet this target includes monitors, TVs and laptops, including computer CPUs, printers and keyboards; fax machines; and DVD players.
