The original bill would have

  • Mandated recycling (scrapping for raw materials) of every electronic device of 4 ounces or more.
  • Implemented a consumer based recycling fee on all electronics sold of 4 ounces or more.
  • Requred EVERY retailer selling electronics items (hair dryers, toaster, computers, refrigerators) to collect fees and impliment a tracking system.
  • Imposed massive fines for non compliance.


No where does the original bill mention re-use of a product.  and DONATIONS of items are also subject to a fee.


It has been updated to instead create a task force to study the subject.
