WVDEP approves 12 applicants for FY2020 CED recycling grants

Applicants to receive grant amounts totaling $133, 261

CHARLESTON, WV – The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection’s (WVDEP) Covered Electronic Devices (CED) Recycling Grant Program has approved 12 applicants for grant amounts totaling $133,261.

Established in 2008 under the WVDEP’s Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan (REAP), the CED Program requires that manufacturers register their brands with the state. The fees collected from this program allow counties and municipalities to apply for CED grants to conduct electronic collection events and support ongoing collection programs.

The goals of the program are to establish a registration process for manufacturers of covered electronic devices, to determine if manufacturers have adopted or implemented a free take-back/recycling program for their products and to award recycling grants to counties and municipalities for recycling or other programs that divert covered electronic devices from the waste stream.

Grants were awarded to:
