Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events
Bring unwanted hazardous household automotive products, home maintenance, lawn and pest control products to the next Regional Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Event!
The scheduled events are for residents only. Businesses will be turned away.
Thinking of kicking your old, obsolete computer or television to the curb on trash night? Don’t do it because your trash company will no longer collect them.
There is a disposal ban on a host of electronic devices, which is covered in the final provision of the Pennsylvania Covered Device Recycling Act, signed into law by former Gov. Ed Rendell in 2010. As mandated by the CDRA, it will become illegal for desktop computers, laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals such as printers, keyboards, and mouses, tablets like iPads and Kindles, and televisions with viewable screens larger than four inches to be disposed of in state landfills. All of that “e-waste” must be recycled instead. Cell phones and PDAs are exempt from the law.
Each county as well as Tredyffrin Township sponsor E-cycling events throughout the year. See the PDF below for the Chester County 2015 calendar of recycling events and watch the Tredyffrin Township website for scheduled E-cycling events.
