* About the eRecyle Fee – While Element continues to offer the most advanced and latest technology to consumers, Element is sensitive to the environmental concerns relating to disposal of old television technology and protection of the environment. As a result, Element supports the recycling program efforts adopted by many states, and encourages our customers to participate in “green” environmental practices.
Electronic Waste Recycling:
California enacted the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (SB 20, Sher, Chapter 526, Statutes of 2003) and associated regulations to establish a funding system for the collection and recycling of certain electronic wastes. The is intended to provide convenient opportunities for all Californians to properly manage unwanted electronics. More information regarding this legislation can be found here:
These programs may include information on charitable donations of useful television technology through not for profit organizations as well as information relating to e-waste facilities available in your area.
At the time of an Element television purchase, you will be charged an e-waste recycling fee as mandated by the State of California (fees range from $5 up to $7) and as may be mandated by other states, to help fund recycling efforts. These fees are collected at the time of purchase and remitted to the state in accordance with regulatory requirements.
Effective January 1, 2017, the covered electronic waste recycling fee paid by a consumer upon the purchase of a new or refurbished covered electronic device shall be the following amounts:
$5 for each covered electronic device with a screen size of less than 15 inches measured diagonally.
$6 for each covered electronic device with a screen size greater than or equal to 15 inches but less than 35 inches measured diagonally.
