California Legislature to Consider Collection and Recycling Mandates for Portable Batteries and Electronic Devices

Extended producer responsibility (EPR) battery bill (AB 2440) has been introduced in the California Assembly and focuses on the collection and recycling of portable batteries and electronic devices with embedded batteries. The short, three-page bill – Battery and Battery-Embedded Product Recycling and Fire Risk Reduction Act of 2022 – is a placeholder for what is expected to be a very lengthy and complex EPR bill. The companion bill in the California Senate is SB 1215.
