Pennsylvania’s E-cycling Law
Beginning January 24, 2013, Pennsylvania’s “Covered Device Recycling Act” (Act 108) will impact how to manage certain electronic devices. Under the Act, “covered devices” include televisions, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (anything that connects to a computer such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, etc.). Starting January 24, 2013 the Act prohibits the acceptance of these materials at all Pennsylvania solid waste disposal facilities and also prohibits residents from placing them at the curb for waste pick-up. Under the Act, waste haulers will NOT pick up electronic devices. York County residents and businesses must now recycle these devices.
In addition to donations of home improvement items for resale, Re-Source York continues to accept electronics for e-cycling at both of its locations during regular business hours.
The 161 E. Ninth Avenue store in North York is open Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm, Saturday, 9am to 4pm.
The 405 Carlisle Avenue, York store is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 11am to 6pm; Friday and Saturday, 9am to 4pm.
While no cash is offered, donors will receive a charitable tax form for items brought in.
