Please be advised that effective January 24, 2013, landfills in PA will no longer be allowed to accept certain “covered” electronic devices. A new state law – Act 108 of 2010 – known as The Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA) defines these electronics to include desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals, and televisions. The CDRA requires that these devices be recycled. The Lackawanna Recycling Center at 3400 Blvd. Ave. in Scranton will accept electronics at no cost. A box is situated in front of the office portion of the center. If multiple electronics are being delivered, please phone the recycling center at 963-6868 ex 5 to arrange for accommodations.
