Consumer Electronics Recycling
2008 Electronics Recycling Event

Cumberland County was one of the first governmental agencies in Pennsylvania to offer a consumer electronics recycling program.  The program, which began in 2001, consisted of drop-off events where residents could bring their consumer electronics for recycling.  The historical results of that program are presented below. 

Pennsylvania passed the Covered Device Recycling Act (Act 108) in 2010, which required manufacturers to provide recycling programs for desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals and televisions sold to consumers in Pennsylvania beginning in January 2012.  Act 108 also states that, beginning January 24, 2013, desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals, televisions, and any components of such devices may no longer be disposed in Pennsylvania with municipal waste.  All of these devices are required to be properly recycled.

As Act 108 has evolved, Cumberland County has not offered a consumer eletronics recycling program since 2009.  Please visit our Specialized Items web page for immediate consumer electronics recycling opportunities, including several local recycling outlets.
