ERCC Announces Comprehensive Resource for Keeping Track of State Electronics Recycling Laws

Share Article

The new e-Cycle Compliance Calendar website sprung from conversation among ERCC members who wanted a comprehensive and public resource for tracking the complicated requirements under state electronics recycling laws. The site was made possible by a contribution from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA).

Because no two state electronics recycling laws are identical, stakeholders need a way to break down the various elements to compare them and to keep track of reoccurring sets of deadlines each year.

The Electronics Recycling Coordination Clearinghouse (ERCC) today officially announced the launch of a new website - the e-Cycle Compliance Calendar. The website is a one-stop location for stakeholders such as collectors, manufacturers and recyclers to view and track requirements across the 25 state electronics recycling laws. The vision for the e-Cycle Compliance Calendar website originally sprung from conversation among ERCC members who wanted a comprehensive and public resource for tracking the complicated requirements under state electronics recycling laws. The multi-year effort to develop the database and website involved state agencies reviewing information about their laws as well as ERCC members giving input on the most effective ways to view and report data. The site was made possible by a contribution from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA).

ERCC will host a webinar to demonstrate the key features of the e-Cycle Compliance Calendar website on Wednesday, June 5th from 1-2 p.m. Eastern Time. To register for the e-Cycle Compliance Calendar Overview Webinar go to: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3140536561092847373
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

“The e-Cycle Compliance Calendar is a much-needed tool for collectors, manufacturers, recyclers and state agencies to assist in compliance with state electronics recycling laws or to compare elements of their laws with others,” said ERCC’s Jason Linnell. “Because no two state electronics recycling laws are identical, stakeholders need a way to break down the various elements to compare them and to keep track of reoccurring sets of deadlines each year.”

The e-Cycle Compliance Calendar website is now available as a free resource at http://ecyclingcompliance.org. Any user can create and save custom reports by signing up for an account. With an account, users may also choose to receive email alerts for specific state deadlines or changes. The website will be maintained and updated by ERCC administrators. To be involved in the ongoing development process with this project and others, check out membership options by going to the ERCC website at: https://www.ecycleclearinghouse.org/contentpage.aspx?pageid=86.

ERCC is a membership organization of state agencies and other stakeholders that serves as a forum for coordination and information exchange, and a mechanism for stakeholders affected by state electronics recycling laws to harmonize efforts wherever possible. It is managed by two respected non-profit organizations – the National Center for Electronics Recycling (NCER) and Northeast Recycling Council (NERC).
