DEP approves 26 applications for FY2014 recycling grants

9/27/2013
Twenty-six applicants have been approved for grant amounts totaling $154,030 in the Department of Environmental Protection’s Covered Electronic Devices (CED) Recycling Grant Program, DEP Cabinet Secretary Randy Huffman announced.

Established in 2008 under the DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP), the CED Program requires manufacturers to 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.
