What is the Electronics Recycling Representative Organization (ERRO)?
The ERRO is a non-profit organization formed to promote responsible electronic waste recycling and provide electronics manufacturers the opportunity to operate electronic waste recycling programs as participants in a representative organization.
What DOES the Manufacturer Clearinghouse Do?
- Set rules for manufacturers and their programs
- Develops methodology for setting manufacturer percentage obligations
- Determines how to allocate sites, and to whom (individual manufacturers or groups
- Gathers required data and reports to the State
- Develops rules for private programs and eligibility
- Manages a true-up process for measuring actual collections vs estimates
What DOESN’T the Clearinghouse Do?
- DOES NOT contract with recyclers, collectors or other service providers (handled by group plans or manufacturers)
- DOES NOT decide which collection site/s or events will be included in the final Program Plan
- DOES NOT decide which entities (collectors, super-collectors, recyclers/recovers) are used in meeting the required minimum sites for convenience standard (all entities must meet requirements in law and those by contract)
- DOES NOT mandate whether assigned groups/manufacturers agree to include all proposed sites/events from opt-in forms, including those beyond minimum required under convenience standard
