Electronic Device Recycling in 2023 The State of Hawai`i recently enacted Act 151 (2022), which mandates that "manufacturers must fully fund their recycling plan, including the collection, transportation, and recycling of all [specified] electronic devices in the State." These plans include recycling targets, collection services at least once per month in at least Kailua-Kona and Hilo, at no cost to device owners, starting in January 2023.
