Corner of TabGuidelines for Managing Discarded Electronics Corner of TabHighlights

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection strongly recommends recycling of all unwanted electronic products such as televisions, computers and cell phones. While Florida has no specific laws or regulations that apply to discarded electronic products, there are more general regulations that do apply. In a June 16, 2008 memorandum "Regulatory Guidelines for the Management of Unwanted Electronic Products", the Department clarified the regulations that apply to unwanted electronics. These guidelines are based upon an update of a memorandum and strategy paper issued by the Department in October 1999 as well as a regulation, known as the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) Rule, issued by the United States Environmental Protection Agency on July 28, 2006. These guidelines, along with the extensive electronics recycling infrastructure in Florida, make recycling the right choice for Florida's citizens, businesses and institutions.
