Washington’s e-waste program, E-Cycle Washington, has received significant backing from the Washington State Legislature, including support from WR. As the first state in the country to adopt this model legislation, Washington has paved the way for other states to follow suit, embracing the concept of extended producer responsibility (EPR). This legislative framework has since been adopted by numerous states across the nation.

One noteworthy aspect of E-Cycle Washington is its accessibility to small businesses. Did you know that businesses in Washington with fewer than 50 employees can utilize E-Cycle Washington’s services for free? This initiative offers a convenient solution for recycling outdated or unwanted electronics. Accepted items include computers (such as laptops, desktops, and tablets), monitors, and televisions. With over 220 drop-off sites scattered across the state, small businesses can easily locate a nearby facility.

Participating in the program is simple. Small businesses can drop off up to 10 accepted electronics at any designated location, free of charge. To find the nearest drop-off site, businesses can visit the locator website. Once at the drop-off location during business hours, they can hand over their accepted products for recycling.

For those seeking additional information about the program, including contact details for E-Cycle Washington, the website offers comprehensive program details. It’s worth noting that E-Cycle Washington was established through Washington State legislation. Since its inception in January 2009, the program has made significant strides, recycling over 465 million pounds of electronics to date. This demonstrates the tangible impact and success of Washington’s commitment to sustainable e-waste management.
