"Electronic Waste:

"What do I do with my old TVs and computer monitors better known as a Covered Device?"

Your trash hauler will no longer accept them at the curb.  They are no longer allowed to be disposed of in landfills but rather, they must now be recycled.  Please see the link for the Covered Device Act below under "Links".

Lehigh County does not hold Electronics Recycling events. 

This is because rather than residents only being able to dispose of these items during one day events once or twice a year as in other counties, we're fortunate enough to have at least two "R2 Certified" electronics recyclers operating locally doing business on a continual basis as well as many retailers. These companies are permitted by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to recycle those items.

  For contact information for those companies please see the links below, or call the Lehigh County Solid Waste, Recycling, Electronic Waste, and Household Hazardous Waste Hotline at 610-782-3073.  We will be happy to provide you with this information.
