New Rules for Curbside Electronic Waste Removal
Due to a mandatory state law, beginning January 1, 2013, the City is no longer legally permitted to collect TVs, computers and computer parts at the curb. This new law seeks to keep harmful metals such as cadmium, lead and mercury out of the waste stream. These items must be taken to an electronics retail store or a sponsored drop-off location. Some retailers have already begun to recycle these items. Please check the inside pages for a list of local retailers.
For more information on the new law, or a more comprehensive list of recyclers, visit the State’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) website at dep.state.pa.us, or call their toll-free hotline at 1-800-346-4242.
