Recycling Plans for Electronic Products

The Standard Plan for Recycling Covered Electronic Products in Washington State was submitted by the Washington Materials Management & Financing Authority on November 8, 2013, for the required 5-year update.

Manufacturers of electronic products sold in or into the state of Washington must participate in a recycling plan. This includes manufacturers of desktop and portable or laptop computers, computer monitors and televisions. There are two recycling plan options:

  • Standard Plan – Manufacturers are automatically participants in the Standard Plan for the collection, transportation and recycling of electronic products. The Standard Plan will be operated by the Washington Materials Management and Financing Authority
  • Independent Plan – If certain criteria are met, a manufacturer or a group of manufacturers may opt out of the Standard Plan and operate an Independent Plan for the collection, transportation and recycling of electronic products in Washington.

If you wish to submit a recycling plan to Ecology, please use the Covered Electronic Product Recycling Plan Template.
