Electronic Waste (E-Waste)

What is Electronic Waste?

Electronic waste, also known as E-waste, E-scrap or end-of-life-electronics, are terms often used to describe electronics that are nearing or at the end of their useful life.  Items include computers, televisions, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, copiers, and more.  

As mandated by the Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA), Act 108 of 2010, it is illegal for desktop computers, laptops, monitors, and peripherals such as printers, keyboards, mouses, tablets (like iPads and Kindles), and televisions with a viewable screen larger than four (4) inches to be disposed of in the state landfills.  

All of that “e-waste” must be recycled instead. 

Recycling E-Waste Events

Easttown and Tredyffrin Townships hold recycling events seasonally, and will be posted on the Township's Trash & Recycling Calendar.
