[GreenYes] Re: Fwd: US manufacturers take back requirements?

Maine and Maryland have laws requiring manufacturer takeback through state-specific strategies. Maine's starts this month and I believe Maryland's starts this summer.

Many, many other states -- and provinces in Canada -- are going to be presenting legislation this season to bring similar laws forward. It is a very dynamic landscape right now for electronics takeback. There's an article in the latest issue of Waste News with an overview of what's coming.

Please feel free to contact me if I can help with pointing you towards specifics. This is one of my expertise areas in my consulting practice, and I've also advised companies complying with WEEE & ROHS globally.

I am working with a client that has to comply with the WEEE (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment) EU requirement. This directive requires manufacturers of these types of equipment to have take-back arrangements for recycling at the end of life of the product. We know that they are various requirements in the US for these products to be recycled or disposed of properly at the end of life by the end-user. Question: Are there any states that currently have regulations on the books that require take-back by the manufacturer instead of the end user? Appreciate any insight you can provide.
