Please visit the Bucks County website under the Planning Commission for the updated television recycling options and the guide to recycling.
The Bucks County Planning Commission will not be sponsoring any electronic collection events until further notice. A 2010 Pennsylvania law, which prohibits trash haulers from collecting old TVs and computers, places the responsibility for safe disposal of electronics on the manufacturers. Even though this state law requires electronics manufacturers to offer recycling opportunities for TVs and computers, those manufacturers are no longer supporting county recycling collections in the Southeastern Pennsylvania region. The County has been unsuccessful in finding a contractor who will collect and dispose of electronics. This has become a statewide problem, and proposals for amendments to the Covered Devices Recycling Act are being considered. Below you will find some information on electronic disposal options.
