Rhode Island has enacted legislation that specifically address the management of certain types of used or discarded electronic equipment in addition to  the adoption of the state’s universal waste rule.

The Rhode Island Electronic Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling Act (requires that after January 31, 2009, all covered electronic products (“CEPs”) must either be recycled or disposed of as hazardous waste.  In 2008, Rhode Island amended the existing legislation to establish a manufacturer-financed system for the collection, recycling, and reuse of covered electronic products in the state. 

A complete discussion of CEP take-back and recycling is found on the USA - Rhode Island - Product Take-Back subject report.
