Oregon’s electronics recycling law
Retailers that sell covered electronic devices in or into Oregon through all types of sales (in-store, catalog, phone and Internet) must follow certain requirements under Oregon’s electronics recycling law.
Covered electronic devices are:
- Computers (including desktops, laptops and tablets)
- Computer peripherals (defined in the law as keyboards and mice)
Retailers must follow Oregon’s electronics recycling law
Retailers must provide consumers with point-of-sale information on where they can find free recycling for computers, monitors, televisions, printers, keyboards and mice.
Retailers may provide the required information through a website, on sales receipts, in-store displays, handouts to customers or other methods.
Retailers may sell only those brands of covered devices on the Oregon “compliant list.”
Sales restrictions apply only to devices that are covered under the law, and not to other electronics or products made by the manufacturer.Current list of manufacturers in compliance
Check for monthly updates. If a brand or manufacturer is not currently on the list, retailers are encouraged to notify Oregon DEQ and to contact the manufacturer directly to alert them that their products are not eligible for sale in or into Oregon unless they register.
Only manufacturers of keyboards and mice are excluded from the registration requirement. Sign up for manufacturer compliance list updates
