Signed into law on May 13, 2008 The Oklahoma Computer Recovery act establishes a convenient and environmentally sound recovery program for the collection, recycling and reuse of computers and computer monitors that have reached the end of their useful lives. To be subject to this law, a manufacturer must produce, sell or import covered devices in an amount exceeding 50 units per year. A manufacturer shall not offer for sale any covered device unless it is labeled with the manufacturer’s brand. Each manufacturer’s recovery plan must provide for covered device collection services that are convenient and available, and ready to meet the collection needs of the consumer.
No later than March 1 of each year, each manufacturer must submit a report that includes a summary of their recovery program, the weight of covered devices collected, and the location and dates of collection events.
Visit the OK Dept. of Environmental Quality website for a list of manufacturers who have submitted recovery plans, a list of corporate recycling programs, a list of companies with drop-off sites, as well as a list of collection events for electronics.
Key Dates: Recovery plans due March 1, annually.
