About the Texas Computer-Equipment Recycling Law
The law requires manufacturers offering to sell new computer equipment in or into Texas to provide a program for collecting and recycling of consumers' used computer equipment.
Since Sept. 1, 2008, manufacturers have been required to provide a program. Each manufacturer is responsible only for its own brand(s) of computer equipment. The collection and recycling must be convenient and free at the time of recycling. The rules define computer equipment as:
The manufacturers are required to offer collection and recycling only for computer equipment purchased primarily for personal or home-business use—regardless of when it was sold; that is, not just computer equipment purchased after Sept. 1, 2008.
By law, you will be responsible for any confidential information left on the computer equipment.
