Act 108, effective January 1, 2013, states “no person may place in municipal solid waste a covered device or any of its components.” This is a disposal ban that means that residents cannot put out covered devices with their trash and haulers cannot accept these same items for any type of disposal. These items must be recycled.
There are NO exceptions to this rule. Covered devices, as defined, include:
Televisions, computers and their peripherals (monitors, keyboards, mice, printers), and cell phones
