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.
