Electronic Recycling

Macungie Borough Pennsylvania's electronics recycling law took effect January 2013 which meant a few changes for state residents.

The law, known as the Covered Devices Recycling Act, bans the disposal of TV's and computer equipment at transfer stations and landfills.

Beginning January 2013, waste haulers can no longer pick up televisions and computer equipment for disposal. Computer equipment includes laptops, monitors, CPUs, printers, scanners, keyboards, mouses, speakers, cables and battery backups. These items, if placed at the curb, will be left at the curb.
