Reuse and Recycling

ORS 459A.300
Legislative findings

The Legislative Assembly finds that:


It is necessary to encourage the design of electronic devices that are more resource-efficient, more recyclable and less environmentally toxic;


The development and availability of a statewide system that conveniently serves both urban and rural areas of Oregon for the collection, transportation and recycling of electronic devices is in the best interest of the state; and


A statewide collection, transportation and recycling system should be financed by the manufacturers of those electronic devices. [2007 c.302 §1]
