Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):


What is a Covered Entity?

A covered entity is a:

-Household, or
-Charity, or
-School district, or
-Business with 10 or fewer employees.

 In addition, anyone delivering seven (7) or fewer electronic devices to a “collector” at any one time is also considered a covered entity.

What is a Collector?

A collector, which may have one or more collection sites, means an entity that receives electronic devices and performs any of the following:

Under the State Standard Plan collector contracts, ONLY these above devices falling under the “electronic waste” definition coming from “Covered Entities” will be compensated.  For this reason, they must be kept separate from other devices, unless alternative arrangements are made in advance.
