Recycling Covered Devices: It’s the Law

In 2013, Pennsylvania passed the Covered Devices Recycling Act. The law prohibits residents from putting any covered device in the trash.

A covered device includes desktop computers, laptops, and computer accessories; televisions; and hand-held tablets (Kindle, iPad, etc.).

As a trash hauler, it is illegal for Econ to take any covered device a customer has put out. Only companies with a specific electronic recycling license can accept any covered device.

You can drop off your old covered devices at:

The Household Hazardous Waste Facility
1299 Harrisburg Pike, Lancaster, PA
Open M-F 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday 8 a.m. – Noon.
Free to all Lancaster County citizens, 10 items max.

Click here for the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority’s website for details on the law.

Before you purchase a new device, ask the store if they have a recycling program for the old device. Most big box stores have a recycling program in place.
