2015 RFP: CRT collection events


The deadline for proposals has passed (April 8). Proposals are currently under review.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is requesting proposals from e-waste collectors and recyclers registered with the Minnesota Electronics Recycling Act, or entities who would contract with a registered collector/recycler to provide a minimum of two one-day events for no end-of-life fee collection of cathode ray tube (CRT) bearing devices. These events will collect only CRTs from Minnesota households outside of the 11-county metropolitan area.

The Grantee would choose and arrange for the locations of the events and solicit participation and commitment (monetary and in-kind) from counties, registered recyclers and electronic device manufacturers. Information on how to register with the e-waste program, as well as a list of currently registered collectors/recyclers are located at www.pca.state.mn.us/electronics.

This opportunity is limited to Minnesota household CRT devices. CRT devices include televisions and computer monitors as described in the Minnesota Electronics Recycling Act, Minnesota Statutes, sections 115A.1310 to 115A.1330.

Collectors and recyclers used under this grant must currently be registered with the MPCA electronic waste program; and Responsible Recycling (R2) or e-Stewards certified at the time of proposal.
