E-Scrap News

California regulators are planning to add OLED display devices, LCD smart displays, and LCD tablets to the state’s e-scrap program. The addition, which the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is making via an emergency rulemaking action, means that e-scrap companies can receive payments from the state for collecting and recycling those devices. It also means electronics retailers around the Golden State will have to begin charging customers fees when they buy products in those categories.
