Maybe. A manufacturer of CEDs that were sold in or into
Oregon during the previous calendar year must register and participate in a recycling program under Oregon
E-Cycles, unless its CEDs are currently registered by another manufacturer. If its CEDs are not currently registered by another manufacturer, a former manufacturer that has not registered must submit a registration form and pay a registration fee of $250 within 30 days of notice from DEQ.
Yes. A manufacturer of computers, monitors, printers and TVs sold in or into Oregon is considered a manufacturer – regardless
of how many of those electronic devices it makes. Oregon E-Cycles does not exempt small manufacturers. Because a manufacturer pays registration fees based on its market share (unit sales of its CEDs sold in or into Oregon during the previous calendar year), it is likely a small manufacturer will pay the lowest registration fees. Similarly, a manufacturer’s recycling obligation is based on its market share (by weight), which will likely be small for a small manufacturer.
Manufacturers must pay registration fees annually. Manufacturers are placed in one of seven fee tiers, based on their market shares (by unit) of CEDs sold in or into Oregon during the previous calendar year, and pay the registration fee assigned for that tier. DEQ assigns the fees for each tier annually; fees range from $40 to $35,000. The Registration Fee Table shows how tiers for fee assignment are determined. DEQ uses the registration fee revenue to cover its costs for administering Oregon E-Cycles.
DEQ sends manufacturers an invoice for their registration fees after May 1; fees are due July 1.
In addition to registering, manufacturers must also participate in
an Oregon E-Cycles recycling program. Manufacturers may participate in the
DEQ-administered State Contractor Program (SCP) or, if certain requirements are met, implement individual or group manufacturer programs operating under plans approved by DEQ.
Participants in the SCP pay a recycling fee to DEQ
to fund the costs of that program. Recycling fees are a per-pound fee based on manufacturers’ respective return shares by weight. Return shares are based on market share by weight of devices sold in or into Oregon during the previous year. DEQ sends participants in the SCP
an invoice for their recycling fees July 1; payment is due Sept. 1.
Participants in individual and group manufacturer programs are responsible for the costs
of their programs. Contact the recycling program representatives
for more information about how their fees are assessed.
Manufacturers pursuing an individual or group program must submit
a recycling plan to DEQ for approval by July 1 each year.
