Don't Trash Your Old Computers and TVs, Recycle Electronics Locally

TVs and computers can no longer be picked up at curbside trash collections under the Covered Device Recycling Act.

Are you still wondering what to do with your old TV or computer that you replaced recently? There are many options for disposal, but trash collection isn't one of them.

TVs and computers can no longer be picked up at curbside trash collections under the Covered Device Recycling Act, which went into effect at the end of last month. "Covered devices" include desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals and televisions, the act states.

Since landfills and other solid waste disposal facilities in Pennsylvania will no longer be allowed to accept covered devices, the Act requires that these devices be recycled.

If you have unwanted electronics, the closest location for recycling is the Best Buy on Easton Road in Willow Grove.

I believe Best Buy charges you to recycle your stuff.

Oh, I didn't know they did. That's good to know.
