It is imperative to note that the Electronic Waste Recycling Fee is not a deposit, and that the covered
products do not contain "redemption value," like many beverage containers in California. Consumers are not entitled to reim-bursement of the fee when covered
products are recycled. Rather, the intent of the fee is to re-duce, or eliminate, the costs associated with properly recycling this material when it becomes waste.
