Environmental Conservation (ENV) CHAPTER 43-B, ARTICLE 27, TITLE 26
§ 27-2615. Department responsibilities.

1. The department is authorized to promulgate rules and regulations
necessary to implement and administer this title. At a minimum, the
department shall promulgate rules and regulations on: standards for
reuse; electronic waste acceptance credits; waivers of the recycling
surcharge; and acceptable alternative methods for the determination of
state sales data.

2. The department shall (a) maintain a list of manufacturers who are
registered pursuant to section 27-2605 of this title, (b) maintain a
list of each such manufacturer's brands, and (c) post such lists on the
department's website.

3. The department may waive the recycling surcharge payable by a
manufacturer under this title when the manufacturer demonstrates in an
application to the department it was unable to accept the weight of
electronic waste required by section 27-2603 of this title despite the
manufacturer's best efforts. The application shall be made with the
annual report required by section 27-2617 of this title. The application
shall include such information as the department requires. A waiver
provided pursuant to this subdivision shall not relieve a manufacturer
from the obligation to comply with the provisions of this title not
specifically addressed in such waiver.
