Connecticut selects Eco International as covered recycler

Eco International has received approval from the State of Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection to serve as a “covered electronic recycler” under the state’s Electronics Recycling Law and as part of the Connecticut Statewide Electronics Recycling Program.

Eco International, an ISO 14001:2004 Certified Recycler, will offer its electronic recycling services to benefit manufacturers, municipalities and individual households throughout the state of Connecticut. Only approved ‘Covered Electronic Recyclers’ are authorized to bill manufacturers of covered electronic devices (CEDs) generated by Connecticut households.

Under the Connecticut law, manufacturers of computers, computer monitors, printers, and televisions, must participate in a state-wide electronics recycling program established by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection to implement and finance the collection, transportation, and recycling of such items from Connecticut households.
