WN - electronic waste recycling fee

The state of California has passed legislation imposing an electronic waste recycling fee for a sale made by a retailer to a consumer in California for certain electronic items. This legislation was SB 20 Senate Bill CHAPTERED and SB 50.

To comply with this new regulation, Acer will charge the applicable California Electronic Waste Recycling fee on all covered items. These covered items include laptop computers, profile computers, tablet PCs, Media Center PC monitors, Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors and Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitors beginning January 1, 2005, that are shipped to customers within the State of California. Starting July 1, 2005: LCD TVs and Plasma TVs are covered. As of January 1, 2005, this does not include camcorders, digital cameras and LCD projectors. This excludes sales to other retailers.

Acer will report and remit all fees collected on all covered electronic devices to the state of California as prescribed in SB 20 Senate Bill starting January 1, 2005.
