DEP Bans Sale Of Electronic Devices Made By 4 Manufacturers Not Complying With PA’s Electronic Waste Recycling Law

The Department of Environmental Protection issued a public notice on September 17 banning the sale of electronic devices made by Linsay Digital, Azulle Tech, Gigabyte Technology and Evervue USA, Inc. because they are not complying with the state’s electronics recycling law. (PA Bulletin, page 6009).  Read more here.

Under state law, manufacturers of new covered devices-- such as televisions, laptop and desktop computers, tablets, etc.-- offered for sale in Pennsylvania are required to register with the Department prior to offering those devices for sale under Section 304 of the Covered Device Recycling Act.

Manufacturers must also pay an annual registration fee and submit a recycling plan and annual report.

Section 302 of the CDRA prohibits the sale of covered devices in the Commonwealth by unregistered manufacturers.

“Due to their non-compliant status and non-inclusion on the list of registered manufacturers, the Department is notifying the public, in cooperation with covered device retailers, that the CDRA prohibits the sale of devices manufactured by Linsay Digital, Azulle Tech, Gigabyte Technology, and Evervue USA within the Commonwealth, and that the sale of such devices would constitute unlawful conduct under the CDRA.”
