Posted by: Mary Beth Mueller on October 22, 2021

PRC will host an electronics recycling collection event on October 27 to provide Delaware County residents with a convenient and cost-effective method of responsibly disposing of televisions, computers and other electronic equipment.

The e-waste collection will take place on Wednesday, October 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Upland County Park, 280 6th Street, Upland, PA 19015.

At no cost, individuals can drop off the following electronics for recycling:

  • televisions (1 TV permitted per registration, 1 registration per person)
  • computer monitors and printers
  • CPU (towers), laptops, mice and keyboards
  • desktop copiers and scanners; tablets, routers and modems
  • home and cell phones
  • cable boxes and electronic cables
  • DVD players, VCRs, stereos and video game consoles
  • vacuum cleaners

 Participants must register in advance at www.prc.org/delcocollection or by calling 610-353-1555 x3.

“In addition to the advance registration process, PRC is integrating on-site procedures to streamline the process at our events,” according to PRC Deputy Director Sarah Alessio Shea.  “We’re asking participants to pack all materials in their car trunks or truck beds and then stay in their vehicles while the contractor unloads the materials.”

This 2021 e-waste collection campaign in Delaware County is sponsored by PECO, The Foundation for Delaware County, Delaware County Parks, County of Delaware and DELCO Sustainability in partnership with Covanta Environmental Solutions.
