Electronic and Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Program
Due to the government mandate, the City of Pittsburgh's collection events and curbside program will be put on hold until further notice. We will be closely monitoring the situation and will keep you posted.
The City of Pittsburgh is proud to partner with Environmental Coordination Services and Recycling (ECS&R) to offer drop-off service as well as a curbside pickup option to our residents. Please note both options will require scheduling in advance through ECS&R directly as well as a disposal fee.

Why must I recycle my Electronic Waste?
Due to the passing of the Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA) in 2010 it banned televisions, computers, and other electronic devices from being placed at the curb and sent to landfill. The Pennsylvania state law was imposed by the Department of Environmental Protection.
Covered Devices Recycling Act (CDRA)
