Q: Why am I being assessed an additional Electronic Waste Recycling Fee by the state of California (EWRA eWaste)?

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 Newegg and only applies to orders shipped within California.

The types of products that Newegg is required to collect this recycling fee on 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:

  • Greater than 4" and less than 15" -- $6.00
  • Greater than or equal to 15" and less than 35" -- $8.00
  • Greater than or equal to 35" -- $10.00

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

Q: How long is the waiting period before I am able to file a claim for a lost, damaged, misdelivered or tampered package?

If an order was damaged, misdelivered or tampered with while in transit, please contact Customer Service within 2 business days of delivery. If your order was lost while in transit, please contact Customer Service within 7 business days of not receiving your order.

Q: Do shipping costs decrease when there are multiple items in an order?

When multiple items are ordered together, shipping cost is usually reduced according to weight and size, safety and insurance required. Simply place all items in the shopping cart, pick the state and method of shipping and apply the shipping calculator.

The total shipping cost is displayed and includes any applicable reductions. For certain items, due to significant shipping discounts already offered by Newegg, the shipping will be added cumulatively, unless multiple items are purchased. The shipping charge is always as per the website.

Q: How do refunds/credits work? How is a refund/credit applied?

The refund will be charged back to your PayPal account.
