As we go through the state-by-state laws for electronic waste in the United States, looking at each of the 24 states which have such laws, we come to Texas, which passed its e-waste law in 2007. The Texas e-waste law is administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
As with other states, the Texas e-waste law requires manufacturers to register with the TCEQ and be responsible for the costs of recycling their products. The law applies only to home electronics (computers, monitors) and does not apply to business use e-waste. Specific equipment, as defined by law, are desktop and notebook computers, monitors and display devices without tuners (i.e. not televisions), and includes keyboard and mouse. Televisions are covered in a separate e-waste law.
