The Electronic Waste Recycling Act became law in California on January 1, 2005. The primary objective of this law is to initiate a recycling program for computer products containing chemicals deemed hazardous to the environment. To fund this program, California requires retailers and e-tailers to collect, on the state’s behalf, a fee for each product covered by this law. The fee is paid by the consumer at the time of purchase of the covered product. This fee will be remitted directly to the state by us and only applies to orders shipped within California.

The items for which we are required to collect a recycling fee include cathode ray tubes, cathode ray tube devices, flat panel screens and other similar video display devices. The actual amount of the recycling fee will vary, based on the screen size of the product when measured diagonally, as follows:

Screen size Fee amount
Greater than 4″ and less than 15″ $5.00
Greater than or equal to 15″ and less than 35″ $6.00
Greater than or equal to 35″ $7.00
Important: For more information concerning the scope and details of the Act, please refer to the websites for the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery or Department of Toxic Substances Control.
