(2)covered television equipment collection events, collection sites, and community television equipment recycling programs.
(e)Information about collection and recycling provided on a television manufacturer’s publicly available Internet website and through a toll-free telephone number does not constitute a determination by the commission that the television manufacturer’s recovery plan or actual practices are in compliance with this subchapter or other law.
(f)Not later than November 1 of each year, the commission shall establish the state recycling rate by computing the ratio of the weight of total returns of covered television equipment in this state by television manufacturers submitting a recovery plan under Section 361.978 (Manufacturer’s Recovery Plan and Related Responsibilities) to the total weight of covered television equipment sold in this state by television manufacturers submitting a recovery plan under Section 361.978 (Manufacturer’s Recovery Plan and Related Responsibilities) during the preceding year.
