(Only the facilities approved for demanufacturing are Class D permitted facilities)

2. You must report annually to your local municipality’s recycling coordinator the weight of electronics recycled. Failure to report your recycling weights is subject to an initial $5000 fine. Back Thru the Future is identified under the NJ Recycling Enhancement act as a “destination facility” for electronic recycling and is authorized to provide electronic recycling weights. Only destination facilities can provide these weights.

3. A reseller is not a recycler. If a NJ based business offers to recycle your equipment and they are not on the above list of Class D processors they are reselling your equipment intact or transporting your equipment out of state. Under NJ law they are not allowed to recycle (process) electronic equipment. In all likelihood your equipment is being shipped overseas.
