The Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA), Act 108 of 2010, bans ALL covered devices from being disposed of in Pennsylvania landfills.  Desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals, televisions, and any components of such devices that are undamaged and remain intact are required to be properly recycled. NO person may dispose of a covered device or any of its components with their municipal solid waste. These devices and their components must be properly recycled and may not be taken to, nor accepted by landfills for disposal.

The Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority implemented a residential Electronic Recycling Program for Monroe County, Pennsylvania residents to bring their unwanted, undamaged and intact electronics to our Blakeslee Facility for proper disposal during business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4pm.  This Electronic Recycling Program is for Monroe County, Pennsylvania residents ONLY and proof of residency is required at time of disposal.  There is NO CHARGE or appointment necessary.
