NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling & Reuse Act Program
The NYS Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act (Act) went into effect January 1, 2011. The Act ensures that every New Yorker has the opportunity to recycle their electronic waste in an environmentally responsible manner. The Act requires manufacturers of covered electronic equipment to provide free and convenient recycling of electronic waste to most consumers in the state. Electronic waste recycling facilities, consolidation facilities and collection sites are all major components of the state’s electronic waste recycling infrastructure.
