Electronics Management

North Carolina General Statutes 130A-309.130 through 130A-309.142, "Discarded Computer Equipment and Television Management" establishes an electronics recycling program for the state of North Carolina with shared responsibility between computer manufacturers, television manufacturers, retailers, local and state government, and consumers. The program's goal is to foster a statewide recycling infrastructure for these materials. In combination with this program, the law bans televisions, computers, monitors, printers, scanners, scanner-fax machines, other devices designed to produce hard paper copies, and peripheral equipment, except keyboards and mice, from disposal in landfills.

Completed forms can be sent in as attachments via email to: electronic_recycling@ncdenr.gov. Checks will need to be mailed to the address found on the forms. Remember: save a copy of the forms you submit on your computer or as paper.

Request the W-9 form by email by contacting Mary Johnson at: Mary.Johnson@ncdenr.gov. For faster response to your request, please be sure to include a fax number or email address with your request.
