‘Covered’ Electronic Devices Recycling Program Begins January 24, 2013

Beginning January 24, 2013 your friendly garbage collector will no longer be able to collect ‘covered’ electronic devices in your trash. Pennsylvania’s Covered Device Recycling Act of 2010 requires “manufacturers of desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals, televisions, etc., “to provide for the collection, transportation and recycling of these devices by establishing one-day events, permanent collection programs or mail-back programs.” Individuals may leave unwanted ‘covered’ electronic devices at various drop-off places like Goodwill stores.
