Waste Removal & Recycling
New recycling requirements for computers, monitors, and television have taken effect in January of 2013. Landfills and other solid waste disposal facilities in Pennsylvania are no longer allowed to accept electronic devices or their components, which affects curbside pickup.
Because of technological advances that have turned every household into an electronics haven, many people are asking how they can recycle or properly dispose of their old electronic devices. The Department of Environmental Protection urges citizens to know how to take steps to reduce, reuse and recycle these and other electronic devices.
