The Manufacturer Responsibility and Consumer Convenience Information Technology Equipment Collection and Recovery Act established a statewide Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program intended to recover electronic devices such as desktop and notebook computers, computer monitors, printers and televisions.
Requires the manufacturer of computer and television products to offer an e-waste recovery and collection plan that is convenient to the consumer. Also requires manufacturers to educate consumers on said recycling program as well as the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control is required to educate the consumer on recovery programs in the state.
