Delaware County, PA Resources Council Host Oct. 17 Electronics Waste Collection Event

Pennsylvania Resources Council and Delaware County will host an electronics recycling collection event on October 17 to provide residents of Delaware County with a convenient and cost-effective method of responsibly disposing of televisions, computers and other electronic equipment.

The e-waste collection will take place on Tuesday, October 17, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Rose Tree Park, 1671 N. Providence Rd., Media, PA 19063.

At no cost, individuals can drop off the following electronics for recycling:

-- CPU (towers), laptops, mice and keyboards

-- desktop copiers and scanners

-- tablets, routers and modems

-- home and cell phones

-- cable boxes and electronic cables

-- DVD players, VCRs, stereos and video game consoles

-- vacuum cleaners

For a FEE, individuals can drop off televisions, computer monitors and printers:

-- Printers – $5 each

-- All computer monitors (flat screen & CRT) – $20 each

-- Televisions – $30 each

-- Console or rear projection TVs – $40 each

Participants must register in advance at PRC’s Collection Events webpage  or by calling 610-353-1555 x3.

“PRC provides residents with numerous options to conveniently and cost-effectively dispose of a wide variety of materials not accepted in curbside pickup,” according to PRC Executive Director Darren Spielman.  “It’s important to divert these materials from landfills since many contain toxic elements that can leach into our waterways or introduce dangerous toxic chemicals into our environment, while others contain valuable recyclable resources.”

This 2023 e-waste collection campaign in Delaware County is sponsored by Delaware County Parks, County of Delaware and DELCO Sustainability in partnership with Covanta Environmental Solutions.
