Collectors wishing to work with manufacturers as part of their collection and recycling network must register with Indiana E-Cycle.
Collectors can include local units of government, solid waste management districts, curbside collection programs, manufacturer mail back programs, and any other collection program (in Indiana or elsewhere) in which covered electronic devices (CEDs) are collected from covered entities (households, small businesses, public schools, and charter schools in Indiana). Manufacturers receive incentives for utilizing recycling facilities located in Indiana (10% incentive) and for collecting CEDs in non-metropolitan counties in Indiana (50% incentive).
Please review the Indiana E-Cycle Collectors Fact Sheet (available on the IDEM Fact Sheets page) for detailed information about the role of collectors in Indiana E-Cycle.
Collectors operate on a calendar year (January 1 - December 31) program year.
Collectors must verify that they are in compliance with Indiana’s Electronic Waste Management Law (329 IAC 16). Compliance with the law includes registration as an electronic waste storage and processing facility or demonstration that the collector is exempt from registration requirements.
Collectors that elect to participate in Program Year 8 (January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017) will have the option to complete a new online reporting form, as opposed to submitting paper forms. This new online report will be due by March 1, 2017. By switching to this new online reporting format, participants will have the opportunity to register for the current year and submit the annual report for the previous calendar year at the same time. In addition, the new online reporting system will carry data over from year-to-year, auto-populate numerical fields, and allow participants to save an incomplete report and return to it later. Collectors can access this online report from IDEM’s Re-TRAC portal. The Collector Reporting Guidance [PDF] provides an overview and step-by-step instructions on how to complete the online reports.
If you choose to renew your registration for 2017 using the current paper format, the Indiana E-Cycle Collector Registration form is due by November 1, 2016.
Collector annual reports are due each year for the previous program year. This annual report is included with the new online registration and reporting system and is due March 1, 2017, as discussed above. However, if you choose to complete the annual report for 2016 using the current paper format, the form is due by April 1, 2017.
