DEP Reinstates Sales Of Electronic Devices By 3 Manufacturers Now In Compliance With PA’s Electronic Waste Recycling Law

The Department of Environmental Protection published notice in the October 22 PA Bulletin that it is allowing the sale of electronic devices from Visual Land Inc., Contixo and Linsay Digital because they are now in compliance with the state’s electronics waste recycling Covered Device Recycling Act. (
PA Bulletin, page 6623)

Sales of electronic devices by Azulle Tech, Gigabyte Technology and Evervue USA, Inc. are still banned in Pennsylvania for noncompliance with the Covered Device Recycling Act.  Read more here.

Under state law, manufacturers of new covered devices-- such as televisions, laptop and desktop computers, tablets, etc.-- offered for sale in Pennsylvania are required to register with the Department prior to offering those devices for sale under Section 304 of the Covered Device Recycling Act.

Manufacturers must also pay an annual registration fee and submit a recycling plan and annual report.

Section 302 of the CDRA prohibits the sale of covered devices in the Commonwealth by unregistered manufacturers.
