E-Waste Disposal and Recycling

The Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA) requires that select electronic devices no longer be disposed of in Pennsylvania landfills. All of these devices are required to be properly recycled. Please see more regarding the CDRA requirements and your options below.

The following items are not permitted in the landfill and must go to special recycling facilities. Therefore, they are not able to be placed in your curbside trash or recycling containers.

  • Televisions
  • Computer monitors
  • Computer towers
  • Computer peripherals (keyboards, mice, etc)
  • Printers

Tip: Before discarding or recycling an electronic device, consider trying to fix it. Click for guides to fix various devices.
