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
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.
- E-readers (Kindle, iPad, or any handheld tablet)
You can drop off your covered devices at:
- The store you purchased the device or any major electronic supplier, such as Best Buy.
