Purchase Your New Monitor Now While the Recycling Fee is Still Cheap!

Monitor recycling fees are to experience dramatic increase as of January 2009

If your monitors are getting old, and you have been meaning to upgrade, time is running out to purchase those new monitors at the current, lower recycling fee. The recycling fee is paid at the time of purchase for new monitors. Effective January 1, 2009 the fees associated with recycling electronic waste will be increased. Based on the information below, this means the seventeen inch monitors that would cost you $208 apiece on December 15th, 2008 will cost you $216 each after January 1st, 2009. This fee is specific to monitors sold in California. While other states may have their own recycling fees, those in the information below do not apply to monitors sold outside of California.

The fee was established by the Electronic Wast Recycling Act of 2003, and retailers started collecting the fee with the purchase of new monitors in 2005. In June of 2008 a decision was reached to increase the fee in order to maintain the solvency of the Electronic Waste Recovery and Recycling Account (EWRRA). Current fees and new fees after January 1, 2009 are shown below.

Revised Electronic Waste Recycling Fee Amount:

Viewable Screen Sizes of greater than 4 inches, and less than 15 inches:

  • Until December 31, 2008 the recycling fee is $6
  • After January 1, 2009 the recycling fee will be $8

Viewable Screen Sizes of equal to or greater than 15 inches, and less than 35 inches:

  • Until December 31, 2008 the recycling fee is $8
  • After January 1, 2009 the recycling fee will be $16

Viewable Screen Sizes of greater than 35 inches:

  • Until December 31, 2008 the recycling fee is $10
  • After January 1, 2009 the recycling fee will be $25
