Recycling Electronics Guidelines
A Law went into effect (Covered Device Recycling Act 108 of 2010) banning certain types of electronics (laptops, desktops, monitors, televisions, et al.) from being placed in a landfill with municipal waste. Instead, all such electronics must be recycled in an approved recycling facility. Note that Lanchester Landfill in Chester County has stopped accepting All Televisions.
The manufacturers of such devices are responsible for providing no-cost recycling opportunities for these electronic devices. Municipal trash haulers are banned from mixing these electronic devices with any trash going to the landfill.
Consumers of these electronic devices are responsible for taking their electronics to an approved electronics location or utilizing an electronics collection program if one is offered in their area. Some retailers may also offer no-cost collection opportunities.
For more information you can visit the Pennsylvania DEP website, or call their Recycling Hotline at 1-800-346-4242.
Best Buy no longer accepts TV's or Computer Monitors at their Pennsylvania locations. Chester County Residents may still schedule a TV pickup with Best buy for $99. (learn more at: Best Buy Recycling 2016).
You can take your old office technology (any brand, any condition, even if you purchased it somewhere else) to your local Staples store (learn more at staples.com/recycle).
