eCYCLE DC: Retailers

<< Back to eCYCLE DC mainpage

Retailers of covered electronic equipment (CEE) have responsibilities under eCYCLE DC. These requirements include sales restrictions on unregistered brands and providing point-of-sale information on how to properly recycle purchased electronic equipment.

Sales Restrictions on Nonregistered Manufacturers
Beginning June 1, 2017, retailers may not sell or offer for sale covered electronic equipment from manufacturers that have failed to register. Once DOEE has determined that a manufacturer has failed to register, the manufacturer will be added to a Nonregistered Manufacturer List. Once on the list, retailers may continue to sell the manufacturer’s CEE for six months. After six months, the manufacturer will be moved to the Do Not Sell List and retailers will be banned from selling or offering for sale the manufacturer’s CEE. Once on the Do Not Sell List, DOEE may take enforcement action against retailers. Once a manufacturer registers, it will be removed from the Do Not Sell List.

Point-of-Sale Information to Customers
Beginning January 1, 2018, retailers shall provide point-of-sale information to customers on how to return purchased covered electronic equipment for recycling.

DOEE has developed the following POS signs, which retailers may use to meet their POS requirements.

For more information on how retailers can meet this requirement, please see the Retailer FAQ.
