Effective January 1, 2013, the City of Pittsburgh will no longer collect televisions, computers and computer peripherals at the curb. This is because the State of Pennsylvania has banned these items from landfills (see the Covered Devices Recycling Act (CDRA), Pa Act 108 of 2010). Computer peripherals include monitors, keyboards, mice, external drives, printers and other devices exclusively plugged into a computer. Do not place these items at the curb or you may be cited. These items must be taken to an electronics retail store or collection location where they will be collected for recycling purposes.

For more information on the new CDRA Act or a more comprehensive list of recyclers, please visit the DEP website at www.dep.state.pa.us.
