If you are a Vermont public or private entity that collects, sorts and consolidates  electronic waste intended to go to a recycler and/or you perform electronics data security services in a manner approved by the secretary, you qualify as a COLLECTOR under the Vermont E-Cycles Program and must register with the state. For more information, please refer to our Guidance Document for Electronics Collectors.

If you are conducting a one-day or multiple-day electronic waste COLLECTION EVENT to collect computers, monitors, printers, televisions, and computer peripherals from Vermont residsents or businesses you must register with the state of Vermont as an event. Each individual event or continuous, multi-day event, even if re-occuring in the same location multiple times (e.g. once each year, every quarter, etc.), must be registered separately and obtain a different registration number for each one-day or multiple-day event.

You are a TRANSPORTER under the electronics waste law if you transport computers, computer peripherals, monitors, televisions, or printers from collection locations or collection events within the state of Vermont to other Vermont collectors or transport to recyclers within or outside the State of Vermont. For more information on the requirements for electronic waste transporters please read our Guidance Document for Electronics Transporters

You are a RECYCLER if you have a permanent location in the state of Vermont and accept computers, computer peripherals, monitors, televisions, or printers from anyone, including collectors, for the purpose of recycling, reuse, or refurbishment. Read the Guidance Document for Electronics Recyclers for more details on the requirements that apply to recyclers.
