Two E-Waste Recycling Events Planned
Northampton Township has scheduled two e-waste recycling events for April 20 and Sept. 28.
Northampton Township has partnered with Leck Waste Services to schedule two e-waste recycling events so residents have a place to properly dispose of computers and other electronics safely.
The first e-waste recycling event will be held April 20 from 8 a.m. to noon and the second will be held Sept. 28 , also from 8 a.m. to noon. Both events will be held at Leck, 237 Jacksonville Road, Ivyland.
According to township officials, a new state law prohibits the township’s trash hauler from taking electronics. The law, the Covered Device Recycling Act 108, prohibits computers, keyboards, televisions, printers, microwave ovens, fax machines and other electronics from disposal at Department of Environmental Protection solid waste landfills.
Acceptable e-waste recycling items include:
- VCR/DVD/CD players
- Cell phones
- Small office copiers/printers/fax machines
- TVs/radios/MP3 players
- Electronic toys and games
- Common household appliances like stoves, washers, dryers, air conditioners and refrigerators
