Take-Back Programs Manufacturer Take-Back and Recycling Programs By North Carolina Law, all computer equipment manufacturers, including makers of desktops, laptops, computer monitors, printers, and scanners must offer a no-cost recycling program to North Carolina households. In addition to local government electronics recycling services, manufacturer programs are a good option for households with electronics discards. The N.C. Division of Waste Management maintains a list of electronics manufacturers with websites and phone numbers to inquire about take-back or recycling services they provide. The EPA provides a list of manufacturer recycling programs that are associated with the Sustainable Materials Management Electronics Challenge. Retail Take-Back and Recycling Programs Some electronics retailers offer takeback and/or recycling options for their customers. The EPA provides a list of retailer recycling programs from participants of the Sustainable Materials Management Electronics Challenge.
