287.17(4)(d) (d) Annual shortfall fee after 2010. The annual shortfall fee to be paid by a manufacturer in a year after 2010 is calculated as follows:
287.17(4)(d)1. 1. Determine the manufacturer's target recycling weight by multiplying the number of pounds of the manufacturer's covered electronic devices sold to households or schools in this state during the program year that began 36 months before the beginning of the program year in which the calculation is made, as reported under sub. (5) (a), by 0.8.
287.17(4)(d)2. 2. Determine the actual recycling weight by adding the weight of eligible electronic devices recycled by or on behalf of the manufacturer during the previous program year, as determined under par. (f) 1., plus the number of recycling credits that a manufacturer elects to use, as reported to the department under sub. (5) (c) 3.
287.17(4)(d)3. 3. Subtract the actual recycling weight, determined under subd. 2., from the target recycling weight, determined under subd. 1.
287.17(4)(d)4. 4. Multiply the amount determined under subd. 3. by the estimated cost of recycling determined as follows:
287.17(4)(d)4.a. a. Fifty cents per pound for a manufacturer if the weight of eligible electronic devices recycled by or on behalf of the manufacturer, as determined under subd. 2., is less than 50 percent of the target recycling weight, determined under subd. 1.
287.17(4)(d)4.b. b. Forty cents per pound for a manufacturer if the weight of eligible electronic devices recycled by or on behalf of the manufacturer, as determined under subd. 2., is at least 50 percent but not more than 90 percent of the target recycling weight, determined under subd. 1.
287.17(4)(d)4.c. c. Thirty cents per pound for a manufacturer if the weight of eligible electronic devices recycled by or on behalf of the manufacturer, as determined under subd. 2., is more than 90 percent of the target recycling weight, determined under subd. 1.
287.17(4)(dm) (dm) Target recycling weight for 2010. A manufacturer's target recycling weight for the last 2 program quarters of program year 2009-10, is calculated by multiplying the number of pounds of the manufacturer's covered electronic devices sold to households in this state during program year 2007-08, as reported under sub. (5) (a), by 0.8 and multiplying the product by 0.5.
287.17(4)(e) (e) Recycling credits. If, for a program year, the weight of eligible electronic devices recycled by or on behalf of a manufacturer, as determined under par. (f) 1. or 2., exceeds the target recycling weight determined under par. (d) 1. or (dm), the manufacturer has a number of recycling credits equal to the number of excess pounds or 20 percent of the target recycling weight, whichever is less. The manufacturer may use the credits for the purpose of par. (d) 2. for any of the 3 succeeding program years or may sell credits to another manufacturer for use for any of the 3 succeeding program years.
287.17(4)(f) (f) Weight recycled.
287.17(4)(f)1.1. The weight of eligible electronic devices recycled by or on behalf of a manufacturer for a program year is the weight reported under sub. (5) (b) for that program year, except that if the manufacturer reports separately the weight of eligible electronic devices used by households or schools in rural counties and used by households or schools in urban counties for a program year, the weight is determined by adding the weight used by households or schools in urban counties in that program year and 1.25 times the weight used by households or schools in rural counties in that program year.
287.17(4)(f)2. 2. The weight of eligible electronic devices recycled by or on behalf of a manufacturer for the last 2 program quarters of program year 2009-10 is the weight reported under sub. (5) (b) for that period, except that if the manufacturer reports separately the weight of eligible electronic devices used by households or schools in rural counties and used by households or schools in urban counties for that period, the weight is determined by adding the weight used by households or schools in urban counties in that period and 1.25 times the weight used by households or schools in rural counties in that period.
287.17(4)(g) (g) Relief from shortfall fee.
287.17(4)(g)1.1. Instead of paying a shortfall fee under this subsection in a year, a manufacturer may submit, with its registration, a request for relief from the shortfall fee in that year along with information showing that the manufacturer has made good faith progress toward meeting its target recycling weight under par. (d) 1.
287.17(4)(g)2. 2. If the department determines that a manufacturer that makes a request under subd. 1. in a year has made good faith progress toward meeting its target recycling weight, the department shall waive the requirement that the manufacturer pay the shortfall fee in the year. If the department determines that the manufacturer has not made good faith progress toward meeting its target recycling weight, it shall notify the manufacturer and the manufacturer shall pay the shortfall fee within 60 days after receiving the notification.
