Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

415 ILCS 150/30

    (415 ILCS 150/30)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
    Sec. 30. Manufacturer responsibilities.
    (a) Prior to April 1, 2009 for the first program year, and by October 1 for program year 2011 and each program year thereafter, through program year 2018, manufacturers who sell computers, computer monitors, printers, televisions, electronic keyboards, facsimile machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, or small-scale servers in this State must register with the Agency. The registration must be submitted in the form and manner required by the Agency. The registration must include, without limitation, all of the following:
        (1) a list of all of the manufacturer's brands of
    
computers, computer monitors, printers, televisions, electronic keyboards, facsimile machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, and small-scale servers to be offered for sale in the next program year;
        (2) (blank); and
        (3) a statement disclosing whether any of the
    
manufacturer's computers, computer monitors, printers, televisions, electronic keyboards, facsimile machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, or small-scale servers sold in this State exceed the maximum concentration values established for lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEEs) under the RoHS (restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment) Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and Council and any amendments thereto and, if so, an identification of the aforementioned electronic device that exceeds the directive.
    If, during the program year, any of the manufacturer's aforementioned electronic devices are sold or offered for sale in Illinois under a new brand that is not listed in the manufacturer's registration, then, within 30 days after the first sale or offer for sale under the new brand, the manufacturer must amend its registration to add the new brand.
    (b) Prior to July 1, 2009 for the first program year, and by the November 1 preceding each program year thereafter, through program year 2018, all manufacturers whose computers, computer monitors, printers, televisions, electronic keyboards, facsimile machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, or small-scale servers are offered for sale in the State shall submit to the Agency, at an address prescribed by the Agency, the registration fee for the next program year. The registration fee for program year 2010 is $5,000. The registration fee for program year 2011 is $5,000, increased by the applicable inflation factor as described below. In program year 2012, if, in program year 2011, a manufacturer sold 250 or fewer of the aforementioned electronic devices in the State, then the registration fee for that manufacturer is $1,250. In each program year after 2012, if, in the preceding program year, a manufacturer sold 250 or fewer of the aforementioned electronic devices in the State, then the registration fee is the fee that applied in the previous year to manufacturers that sold that number of the aforementioned electronic devices, increased by the applicable inflation factor as described below. In program year 2012, if, in the preceding program year a manufacturer sold 251 or more of the aforementioned electronic devices in the State, then the registration fee for that manufacturer is $5,000. In each program year after 2012 through program year 2018, if, in the preceding program year, a manufacturer sold 251 or more of the aforementioned electronic devices in the State, then the registration fee is the fee that applied in the previous year to manufacturers that sold that number of the aforementioned electronic devices, increased by the applicable inflation factor as described below. For program year 2011, program year 2013, and each program year thereafter, through program year 2018, the applicable registration fee is increased each year by an inflation factor determined by the annual Implicit Price Deflator for Gross National Product, as published by the U.S. Department of Commerce in its Survey of Current Business. The inflation factor must be calculated each year by dividing the latest published annual Implicit Price Deflator for Gross National Product by the annual Implicit Price Deflator for Gross National Product for the previous year. The inflation factor must be rounded to the nearest 1/100th, and the resulting registration fee must be rounded to the nearest whole dollar. No later than October 1 of each program year, through October 1, 2017, the Agency shall post on its website the registration fee for the next program year.
    (c) Through program year 2018, a manufacturer whose computers, computer monitors, printers, televisions, electronic keyboards, facsimile machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, or small-scale servers are sold or offered for sale in this State on or after January 1 of a program year must register with the Agency within 30 days after the first sale or offer for sale in accordance with subsection (a) of this Section and submit the registration fee required under subsection (b) of this Section prior to the aforementioned electronic devices being sold or offered for sale.
    (d) Through program year 2018, each manufacturer shall recycle or process for reuse CEDs and EEDs whose total weight equals or exceeds the manufacturer's individual recycling and reuse goal set forth in Section 15 of this Act. Individual consumers shall not be charged a fee when bringing their CEDs and EEDs to collection locations, unless a financial incentive of equal or greater value, such as a coupon, is provided. Collectors may charge a fee for premium services such as curbside collection, home pick-up, or a similar method of collection.
    When determining whether a manufacturer has met or exceeded its individual recycling and reuse goal set forth in Section 15 of this Act, all of the following adjustments must be made:
        (1) The total weight of CEDs processed by the
    
manufacturer, its recyclers, or its refurbishers for reuse is doubled.
        (2) The total weight of CEDs is tripled if they are
    
donated for reuse by the manufacturer to a primary or secondary public education institution the majority of whose students are considered low income or developmentally disabled or to low-income children or families or to assist the developmentally disabled in Illinois. This subsection applies only to CEDs for which the manufacturer has received a written confirmation that the recipient has accepted the donation. Copies of all written confirmations must be submitted in the annual report required under Section 30.
        (3) The total weight of CEDs collected by
    
manufacturers free of charge in underserved counties is doubled. This subsection applies only to CEDs that are documented by collectors as being collected or received free of charge in underserved counties. This documentation must include, without limitation, the date and location of collection or receipt, the weight of the CEDs collected or received, and an acknowledgement by the collector that the CEDs were collected or received free of charge. Copies of the documentation must be submitted in the annual report required under subsection (h), (i), (j), (k), or (l) of Section 30.
        (4) If an entity (i) collects, recycles, or
    
refurbishes CEDs for a manufacturer, (ii) qualifies for non-profit status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, and (iii) at least 75% of its employees are developmentally disabled, then the total weight of CEDs will be tripled. A manufacturer that uses such a recycler or refurbisher shall submit documentation in the annual report required under Section 30 identifying the name, location, and length of service of the entity that qualifies for credit under this subsection.
    (e) (Blank).
    (f) Through program year 2018, manufacturers shall ensure that only recyclers and refurbishers that have registered with the Agency are used to meet the individual recycling and reuse goals set forth in this Act.
    (g) Through program year 2018, manufacturers shall ensure that the recyclers and refurbishers used to meet the individual recycling and reuse goals set forth in this Act shall, at a minimum, comply with the standards set forth under subsection (d) of Section 50 of this Act. By November 1, 2011 and every November 1 thereafter, through November 1, 2017, manufacturers shall submit a document, as prescribed by the Agency, listing each registered recycler and refurbisher that will be used to meet the manufacturer's annual CED recycling and reuse goal and certifying that those recyclers or refurbishers comply with the standards set forth in subsection (d) of Section 50.
    (h) By September 1, 2012 and every September 1 thereafter, through September 1, 2017, manufacturers of computers, computer monitors, printers, televisions, electronic keyboards, facsimile machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, or small-scale servers shall submit to the Agency, in the form and manner required by the Agency, a report that contains the total weight of the aforementioned electronic devices sold under each of the manufacturer's brands to individuals in this State as calculated under subsection (c) and (c-5) of Section 15, as applicable. Each manufacturer shall indicate on the report whether the total weight of the aforementioned electronic devices was derived from its own sales records or national sales data. If a manufacturer's weight for aforementioned electronic devices is derived from national sales data, the manufacturer shall indicate the source of the sales data.
    (i) (Blank).
    (j) (Blank).
    (k) (Blank).
    (l) On or before January 31, 2013 and on or before every January 31 thereafter, through January 31, 2019, manufacturers of computers, computer monitors, printers, televisions, electronic keyboards, facsimile machines, videocassette recorders, portable digital music players, digital video disc players, video game consoles, electronic mice, scanners, digital converter boxes, cable receivers, satellite receivers, digital video disc recorders, and small-scale servers shall submit to the Agency, on forms and in a format prescribed by the Agency, a report that contains all of the following information for the previous program year:
        (1) The total weight of computers, the total weight
    
of computer monitors, the total weight of printers, facsimile machines, and scanners, the total weight of televisions, the total weight of the remaining CEDs, and the total weight of EEDs recycled or processed for reuse.
        (2) The identification of all weights that are
    
adjusted under subsection (d) of this Section. For all weights adjusted under item (2) of subsection (d), the manufacturer must include copies of the written confirmation required under that subsection.
        (3) A list of each recycler, refurbisher, and
    
collector used by the manufacturer to fulfill the manufacturer's individual recycling and reuse goal set forth in subsections (c) and (c-5) of Section 15 of this Act.
        (4) A summary of the manufacturer's consumer
    
education program required under subsection (m) of this Section.
    (m) Through program year 2018, manufacturers must develop and maintain a consumer education program that complements and corresponds to the primary retailer-driven campaign required under Section 40 of this Act. The education program shall promote the recycling of electronic products and proper end-of-life management of the products by consumers.
    (n) Beginning January 1, 2012, and through December 31, 2018, no manufacturer may sell a computer, computer monitor, printer, television, electronic keyboard, facsimile machine, videocassette recorder, portable digital music player, digital video disc player, video game console, electronic mouse, scanner, digital converter box, cable receiver, satellite receiver, digital video disc recorder, or small-scale server in this State unless the manufacturer is registered with the State as required under this Act, has paid the required registration fee, and is otherwise in compliance with the provisions of this Act.
