The Electronic Waste Recycling Act ("Act") became law in California on January 1, 2005. The primary objective of this law is to initiate a recycling program for computer products containing chemicals deemed hazardous to the environment. To fund this program, California requires retailers and e-tailers to collect, on the state's behalf, a fee for each product covered by this law. The fee is paid by the consumer at the time of purchase of the covered product. This fee will be remitted directly to the state by and only applies to orders shipped within/to California.

The types of products that we are required to collect this recycling fee include cathode ray tubes, cathode ray tube devices, flat panel screens, and other similar video display devices. The actual amount of the recycling fee will vary, based on the screen size of the product when measured diagonally, as follows (rates below effective January 1, 2013 forward):

  • More than 4”, less than 15" measured diagonally -- $3.00  
  • Greater than or equal to 15" and less than 35" measured diagonally -- $4.00
  • Greater than or equal to 35" measured diagonally -- $5.00

For more information concerning the scope and details of the Act, please refer to the California Integrated Waste Management Board's website at or to the Department of Toxic Substances Control's website at

A credit card charge can be declined due to an incorrectly-entered credit card number or expiration date, a daily limit, insufficient credit, mismatch of your billing/shipping address, or other reasons. If the information you submitted was correct, then the reason could be that your bank or credit card company simply did not authorize us to charge the card. Step 1: Please re-enter your credit card information and/or to update or change your payment method. You will then receive a 'real time' authorization for the charge of your credit card. Step 2: If your credit card is still declined, please contact your credit card company as soon as possible and let them know you placed an order with, and find out why they would not authorize us to charge your card. After they have confirmed it is ok for us to re-authorize the payment, go back to step 1 and resubmit your order.
