Recycling Covered Devices
Did you know that Pennsylvania passed a law, called the Covered Devices Recycling Act (CDRA), which prohibits residents from disposing of covered devices as trash? Effective January 24, 2013 residents and businesses may no longer place these items at the curb or throw them away as trash. These devices must be recycled. Additionally, trash haulers are prohibited from collecting these items as municipal waste.
What is a covered device?
Covered devices include desktop computers, laptops, monitors, computer peripherals (keyboard, mouse, printer and speakers), televisions, and e-readers that browse the internet. The Covered Devices Recycling Act does NOT include cell phones, motor vehicle components, appliance components or items such as handheld calculators, PDAs, MP3 players or similar devices.
