Chapter 173-331 WAC
Vehicle Battery Recycling
Please note: revisions to the Vehicle Battery Recycling rule are temporarily on hold. Subscribers to the ListServ (see
the panel to the right) will be notified when rulemaking commences again. Thank you for your patience.
Assistance for persons with disabilities:
A preliminary draft of the revised rule was circulated to members of the vehicle battery recycling rule ListServ on January 26.
Preliminary changes do not increase the obligations of retailers who only exchange new for used batteries as part of the existing
core charge program. Costs for persons who collect used batteries outside the scope of a retail sale are proposed to be reduced
by eliminating the fee associated with an annual registration requirement, and replacing that program with a free on-line, one-time
registration. Please refer to
the timeline page for a summary of changes. A copy
of the preliminary draft rule is available on
the documents page. Send comments or questions to
email@example.com by February 9, 2016.
