The York County Solid Waste Authority has approved a contract extension with its current vendor, ECOvanta, to provide electronics recycling services free of charge to York County residents through 2017.

Under PA Act 108 (the state’s Covered Device Recycling Act), it is unlawful for Pennsylvania landfills and resource recovery facilities to accept specific electronic devices (computers, computer peripherals and televisions) for disposal. PA waste haulers are also prohibited from collecting these electronics for disposal. Under the Act, manufacturers who sell their electronic products in PA must contribute financial support to electronics recycling programs. Unfortunately, the financial support required of those manufacturers by Act 108 falls short of the actual costs of recycling all devices collected in the Commonwealth and, as a result, many electronics recycling programs in PA are underfunded, or simply no longer exist.

In 2017, residential electronics will be collected at three locations:

• In the York County Solid Waste Authority’s contractor parking area on Black Bridge Road in Manchester Township directly across the street from the York County Resource Recovery Center. Electronics recycling is conducted every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

• Fairview Township’s Electronic Recycling Center is open to all York County residents. Summer/Fall (April-Oct.) hours are Monday – Saturday, 8:00a.m.to 4:30 p.m. Winter/Spring (Nov.-March) hours are Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. to Noon and the 1st & 3rd Saturday of every month, from 8:00am-4:30 p.m. The electronics drop off site is located at the Yard Waste Facility, 55 Fairview Road, New Cumberland, PA 17070.

• Penn Township Recycling Drop-off Center is open to all York County residents. The Center is located at 1020 Wilson Avenue, Hanover, PA 17331, and is open Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

*Please Note: In 2017, the Authority will limit the number of TV’s accepted to: FIVE TVs PER VISIT.

Businesses, schools and organizations: York County businesses, schools and organizations are not eligible to participate in any of the residential electronics recycling programs described above. Businesses must make their own arrangements with an electronics recycling vendor to properly manage their electronics. A list of vendors is located on our website at www.ycswa.com.

The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated system that emphasizes waste reduction, reuse, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township. The Resource Recovery Center manages York County’s household and commercial waste, as well as some manufacturing waste.
