DEP Approves 23 Applicants for Covered Electronic Device Recycling Grants

 
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection has approved more than $177,000 in grant funding to 23 applicants for the Covered Electronic Device (CED) Recycling Program.

Established in 2008 under the DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP), the CED program requires that manufacturers register their brands with the state. The fees collected from this program allow counties and municipalities to apply for CED grants to conduct electronic collection events and support ongoing collection programs.

The goals of the program are to establish a registration process for manufacturers of covered electronic devices, to determine if manufacturers have adopted or implemented a free take-back/recycling program for their products and to award recycling grants to counties and municipalities for recycling or other programs that divert covered electronic devices from the waste stream.
