DEP approves 28 applicants for Recycling Grants

9/28/2012
Twenty-eight applicants have been approved for grant amounts totaling $173,198.28 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 of covered electronic devices to register their brands with the state. Fees collected from manufacturers go toward CED grants for counties and municipalities to conduct electronics recycling events and to support ongoing collection programs.

The goals of the program are to continue a registration process for manufacturers, 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.
