In 2012, the General Assembly enacted and the Governor signed the Electronic Recycling Jobs Act (Senate Bill 12-133), which prohibits the disposal of certain personal-use electronic items in landfills. This issue brief provides an overview of electronic waste (e-waste) legislation, the types of devices that may and may not be disposed of in Colorado landfills, and information about how to properly dispose of e-waste.

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
