E-Recycling in the East Update

Posted by: Mary Kate Ranii on February 11, 2015

PRC East has been organizing “boutique” electronic waste collection events in Southeastern Pennsylvania since 2012. These small events, hosted by local municipalities, made it convenient for community members to recycle their televisions, printers, and other electronics in compliance with Pennsylvania’s Covered Devices Act.

Other types of electronics were collected at these events as well, removing thousands of pounds of unwanted material from landfills all across the region!

Currently, PRC East’s collection effort is on hold due to regional changes in the market. We strongly encourage residents to recycle their hard-to-recycle items in this transitional time, and ask that you please utilize the following county-wide list of recycling offices.

These large events may include slightly longer lines, but the satisfaction of recycling this waste remains the same! We will keep our readers posted on any new regional developments.
