                Woolwich Township Office of Recycling is announcing the suspension of the Township E-waste Program effective April 1, 2016. The Township will no longer provide curbside collection on a monthly basis. The temporary suspension is mainly due to the increased economic impact placed on the Township from the current E-Waste Law.

                In 2010 a New Jersey E-Waste law was passed banning Covered Electronic Devices or CED’s from the landfills and incinerators within the State of New Jersey. The ban of CED units put the primary responsibility on the electronic manufactures to provide a free and convenient recycling program for the communities in the state. Unfortunately the current bill does not provide financial freedom to the towns as stated in the current bill. A new bill A-4763 was proposed to make various changes to the electronic waste recycling laws in New Jersey. The substitute bill required each manufacturer of CED’s to provide for the free collection, transportation, and recycling of its market share in weight of all covered electronic devices collected in a program year. The existing law mandates the manufactures to provide for a return share in weight as estimated by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The DEP determination of the manufacturers’ obligations under the current law has underestimated the actual amount collected. This underestimation has caused the current expense the local municipalities have incurred.

                The Assembly bill A-4763 was approved by the Assembly on December 17, 2015 and the Senate version S-2973 was passed January 11, 2016. Unfortunately the Governor chose to pocket veto the bill reverting back to the previous law and all the issues. When new legislation is passed that places the cost where it rightly belongs, Woolwich plans on restarting the program of curbside collection of these items.
