DEP announces CED grant recipients

10/6/2009

Seventeen individual applicants have been approved for amounts totaling $273,290 in the Department of Environmental Protection’s Covered Electronic Devices (CED) Recycling Grant Program, Cabinet Secretary Randy Huffman announced.

Established in 2008 under the DEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP), the CED Program ensures that manufacturers register their brands with the state. The program allows counties and municipalities to apply for CED grants to conduct electronic collection events.
 

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.
