Recycling Covered Devices:  It's the Law
Pennsylvania has passed the Covered Devices Recycling Act, a new law effective January 24, 2013. The law prohibits residents from putting any covered device in the trash.
A covered device includes:
  • Desktop computers, laptops and computer accessories
  • Televisions
  • E-readers (Kindle, iPad, or any handheld tablet)
As a trash hauler, it is illegal for Econ to take any covered device a customer has put out.  Only companies with a specific electronic recycling license can accept any covered device.
You can drop off your covered devices at:
  • The store you purchased the device or any major electronic supplier, such as Best Buy.

Want to drop off a payment in person?  Our office headquarters are at 140 Nottingham Road, Nottingham, Pa. 19362.  Feel free to stop by to pay your bill or just to say hi! 
Our mailing address is P.O. Box 124, Kirkwood, Pa. 17536.
