Are you still wondering what to do with your old TV or computer that you replaced recently? There are many options for disposal, but trash collection isn't one of them.
TVs and computers can no longer be picked up at curbside trash collections under the Covered Device Recycling Act, which went into effect Thursday, Jan. 24. "Covered devices" include desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals and televisions, the act states.
Since landfills and other solid waste disposal facilities in Pennsylvania will no longer be allowed to accept covered devices, the Act requires that these devices be recycled.
Locally, there are several options to safely dispose of your unwanted electronics.
If your item is still in working condition, consider donating it to Impact Thrift
But if your item is broken, you can visit Best Buy in Fairless Hills or the Goodwill located at 2637 Street Rd. in Bensalem to recycle your TVs and other electronics. And Bensalem Staples accepts computer monitors and other electronics.
