The York County Solid Waste Authority Suspends Residential Electronics Recycling during Covid-19 Pandemic
The York County Solid Waste Authority has suspended residential electronics recycling until further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to reduce person-to-person contact. Under Governor Wolf’s “Stay at Home” order, residents should be traveling only for essential services: Essential travel includes things like commuting to an essential job, picking up supplies like groceries and medicine, and checking on family and pets in other households. Residents who would normally bring their electronic devices to the Authority’s free electronics recycling program should hold onto their electronic devices until the pandemic has passed. Once it is safe to do so, the Authority will reopen electronics recycling to residents.
The York County Solid Waste Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, education, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township; and owns and operates a Recyclable Materials Drop-off Center, a Residential Electronics Recycling Program, a Yard Waste Transfer Facility, an Ash Recycling and Processing Facility and an Education Center.
