The California Integrated Waste Management Board (now CalRecycle) adopted regulations to implement portions of landmark legislation that established a funding system for the collection and recycling of certain electronic wastes. Prospective participants must be approved prior to participation.

This application form (CalRecycle 202) is to be used by manufacturers intending to participate in the Covered Electronic Waste (CEW) Recycling Program – Manufacturer Payments (CCR Title 14, Division 7, Chapter 8.2) established pursuant to the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (Chapter 526, Statutes of 2003). Interested parties should review all requirements within the regulations and comply with any and all federal, state and local laws and regulations.

Note: No payments will be made for activities conducted prior to registration approval.

  • Information on the Notice of Intent to Handle
    Any entity handling a minimum threshold of discarded cathode ray tubes (CRT) or universal waste electronic devices (UWED) in California is required to formally notify the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) of their intent to handle, regardless of whether they are participating in the CalRecycle payment system. Information on the process is available on the Department of Toxic Substances Control's website, including informative guides on how to use their system. Please note that, depending on a handler's activities, other DTSC requirements may apply.
  • Payee Data Record, Std.204
    This form is used by State agencies to prepare information returns (Form 1099) and is required as part of a manufacturer's registration application to participate in the take-back program. 

As CalRecycle, in consultation with DTSC, works to implement this important legislation, more information will be available through this website. Note that any guidance provided by the CalRecycle should not substitute for careful reading of the original statute or subsequent regulations.
