Restrictions on Transportation Pick-Ups of
E-Waste and other Hazardous Materials

On February 11, 2003, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) issued regulations for the management of electronic wastes (e-waste) including waste cathode ray tubes (CRTs) such as computer monitors, televisions, cash registers and oscilloscopes; and waste consumer electronic devices (CEDs) such as computers, computer peripherals, telephones, stereo equipment, tape player/recorders, video cassette players/recorders, compact disc players/recorders, calculators, etc.

Transportation drivers will pick up and move just about anything, but NOT hazardous waste. That’s a job for EH&S trained staff with the equipment and know-how to handle hazardous materials. Effective Dec. 8, 2003, the form on this link will be e-mailed to you for any pickup requested from Transportation. Someone knowledgeable about the contents of the materials being moved must complete the form and e-mail it back to Transportation before the move can be completed.

Now that E-waste has been added to the list of asbestos, oil, chemicals, radioactive and other hazardous materials, it is not okay to leave monitors lying around, particularly if they are damaged. See the EH&S What’s New page for information on what to do and who to call for no-cost help with E-waste

For more information about E-waste…The California Integrated Waste Management Board discusses hazardous e-waste and California SB 20, the Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003, here.
