What is the California eWaste Act? What do I need to do to comply with it?

The State of California passed a law, known as the Electronic Waste Recycling Act, under which retailers might need to pay a fee to the State of California for each "covered electronic device" (generally, products with video display screens larger than four inches) sold to a California consumer after December 31, 2004.
