PA Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA) Goes Into Effect

Passed in 2010, the Pennsylvania Covered Device Recycling Act goes into effect today, January 24, 2013. From this point forward electronics (i.e. TVs, computers, tablets, monitors, printers, audio equipment, etc) can no longer be put in curbside trash - they must be recycled. More information about this law can be found on the website of the Department of Environmental Protection.

Local resources for recycling your electronics include:


Construction Junction (an E-Loop location)

Commonwealth Computer Recycling

Best Buy

Scott Electric

PA Resources Council E-Waste Collection Events

Goodwill Industries

For all recycling needs at any location, a good resource is Earth 911.  Just enter the item you are wishing to recycle and your zip code and it generates a list of nearby locations.
