In continuing our efforts to promote sustainability at Eagleview corporate center, The Hankin Group will host an “e-waste” recycling event with the Pennsylvania Resources Council & Ecovanta on June 22nd from 9am-2pm in Eagleview Town Center. According to Ecovanta, over 3 million tons of electronic waste is disposed of each year yet only 14% is recovered for recycling.
You certainly may want to take advantage of this program because you are no longer allowed to dispose of specific electronic devices in your regular trash pick up. Enacted in 2010, the Pennsylvania Covered Device Recycling Act requires that consumers not dispose of covered devices, such as computers, laptops, monitors and televisions, with their regular trash. This means that trash haulers will no longer be able to take covered devices unless the municipality has a curbside electronics collection program that ultimately sends the devices to an electronics recycler.
Anything that plugs in that does not contain Freon is acceptable for recycling! For information on the Pennsylvania Resources Council, visit prc.org and for information on Ecovanta, visit ecovanta.com.
A wide range of electronic materials are accepted such as:
- Cell Phones/Phones
- Copiers/ Fax Machines
- Diagnostic/ Sensing/ Control Equipment
- Electronic Toys & Games
- Mp3 Players
- Televisions/ Radios/Stereos
- VCR/DVD Players
