How Do I get rid of my E-waste?

E-Waste is any electronic device that is unwanted. Cell phones, computers, laptops, tablets, appliances, and more can all become e-waste. Some of this electronic waste can contain toxic materials such as lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, cadmium and many other materials that are harmful for people and the environment. Therefore, products that contain these materials have to be disposed of correctly. When they are thrown into landfills, the dangerous chemicals inside leak out over time pollute water streams that run into lakes, making the water unfit for human consumption and wild life.

Many electronic products contain material that is useful and can be reused to conserve natural resources and energy. Electronics can be taken apart and harvested for parts that can be reused in other devices. This will reduce air pollution, water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions

On Jan. 24, 2013 the PA Covered Device Recycling Act established a disposal ban for all covered devices and components of such devices. Thus, desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals and televisions may no longer be disposed with municipal waste in Pennsylvania at this time. This means that these devices and their components may not be taken to nor accepted by landfills or other solid waste disposal facilities for disposal.

Homeowner Tips

Examine the Packaging

Before making a purchase, check if the item has to be disposed of or recycled in a special way.

Create a Space for E-Waste

Have a specific place in your home where you can put your unwanted electronic devices.

Find Your Local Hazardous Waste Facility

You can drop off your dangerous materials at these companies and they will dispose of them for you. Many companies, such as Best Buy, collect these items.

Know Where it Goes
