The State of Hawai‘i recently enacted Act 151 (2022), which mandates that “Manufacturers [of televisions, computers, computer monitors and printers] must fully fund their recycling plan, including the collection, transportation, and recycling of all [their covered] electronic devices in the State.” These plans include “Manufacturer recycling goals,” and the plans “shall provide collection services at a minimum of once per month” “at no cost to the owner” in certain population centers (e.g. Kailua-Kona and/or Hilo) starting in January 2023.
