Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Cell Phone Recycling Act. Requires that every retailer selling cell phones in this State must have a system in place for the acceptance and collection of used cell phones for reuse, recycling, or proper disposal. Provides that these collection systems must at a minimum provide for: (i) the retailer to take-back, at no cost to the consumer, any used cell phone that the retailer sold to the consumer, (ii) the retailer to take-back any used cell phone from a consumer who is purchasing a new cell phone, at no cost to that consumer, (iii) some mechanism, at the time of delivery, for the return of a used cell phone if the retailer delivers a cell phone directly to a consumer in this State, and (iv) information about cell phone recycling opportunities provided by the retailer that encourages the consumer to take advantage of cell phone recycling. Makes it unlawful to sell a cell phone to a consumer in this State unless the retailer complies with the requirements of the Act. Requires the Environmental Protection Agency to post on its Web site the estimated number of phones recycled each year. Sets forth that providers of cell phone services to the State must certify, as a condition of any contract with the State, that they and their subsidiaries have complied with the requirements of the Cell Phone Recycling Act. Provides that the State may assess a variety of penalties against parties contracting with the State to provide cell phone services while not complying with this Act, including voiding these contracts and seeking certain damages. Amends the Illinois Procurement Code. Makes corresponding changes to the Code to indicate that certain bids must comply with the Cell Phone Recycling Act.
