The NJ Electronics Waste Management Act bans the disposal of computers,
televisions and other "covered devices". Homeowners, businesses and
institutions may not place these items in the trash. Public and Private
haulers will be prohibited from picking up these items for disposal.
Manufacturers offering these electronic devices for sale in NJ are being
required to develop a "takeback system" that will offer consumers free drop
off. Retailers will not be permitted to sell any covered electronic device
from a manufacturer which has not developed a suitable "takeback system"
approved by the State of New Jersey.
