Law passed in 2007 requires a computer manufacturer that in any calendar year manufactures or had manufactured computer equipment in excess of 500 units which were sold in Virginia under its brand or license to implement a recovery/recycling plan for those computers at no charge to the consumer. Manufacturers must also affix a permanent, readily visible label to all computer equipment with the manufacturer's brand and post all recovery program information on a publicly available website.
