Electronic Waste Recycling:
Pennsylvania's Act 108 of 2010, established an electronic recycling program.
Due to this act:
Electronic devices will be prohibited for disposal at the landfill as of January 1, 2012.
Trash haulers will no longer be allowed to haul those electronic devices with your trash.
Electronic devices must be taken to a DEP approved recycle center.
GLRA is opening a facility to recycle Household Electronics.
There will be no charge for residents to take their electronics (TVs, Computers, Monitors, etc.) to the drop off center.
Consumers may also contact the retailer where electronics are purchased to discuss recycling options.
