West Virginia largely tracks the federal hazardous waste regulations and incorporates by reference the federal Universal Waste Rule ("UWR"), as amended through June 1, 2007. The West Virginia UWR therefore covers batteries, pesticides, mercury-containing equipment, and lamps. The state has had a disposal ban for spent lead acid batteries in effect since 1994. In addition, the state recently established a manufacturer-funded electronic product take-back program. West Virginia is also a member of the Mid-Atlantic Consortium of Recycling and Economic Development Officials ("MACREDO") and the EPA Region 3 eCycling Team, which have begun to study and make policy recommendations regarding electronics recycling issues.
