Electronic Waste Recycling (eWaste) Fee – CED Recycling Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Open All Close All

No. The disposal of a CED is a separate transaction from the purchase of a CED. The disposal facility may or may not charge the consumer a fee to dispose a CED, but either way, it will not be dependent upon a consumer having first paid an Electronic Waste Recycling Fee at the time they purchased the CED.

California Department of Tax and Fee Administration does not administer this portion of the law. Please contact the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) with your inquiry. They are responsible for administering the recycling programs. Contact information for the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) is listed below.
