Due to problems created by the Pennsylvania State Law (Act 108) that requires the recycling of electronics, the York County Solid Waste Authority is forced to suspend Electronics Recycling in York County until further notice. Specific electronics waste currently banned from PA waste disposal facilities include: televisions, desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors and computer peripherals (anything that connects to a computer such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, etc.). This disposal ban, coupled with the insufficient funding mechanisms for recycling established in the law, have together undermined the economic viability of electronics waste recycling in Pennsylvania.GrowNYC`s Recycling Champions Program (RCP), develops model recycling programs at over 100 NYC public schools each year, educating 100,000 students, staff, and custodians about recycling. Dynamic Recycling is a full service IT asset disposition, electronics recycling, scrap purchasing, and data security corporation with locations in Onalaska, WI and Nashville, TN. Since the organization`s 2007 inception, Dynamic Recycling has become an industry leader by building authentic relationships with clients based on integrity, service quality and consistency, as well as maximizing value recovery.Since 1999, SWANCC has provided environmentally-responsible recycling for end-of-life computers and electronics. Beverage bottles were recycled with a refundable deposit at some drink manufacturers in Great Britain and Ireland around 1800, notably Schweppes 8 An official recycling system with refundable deposits was established in Sweden for bottles in 1884 and aluminum beverage cans in 1982; the law led to a recycling rate for beverage containers of 84-99 percent depending on type, and a glass bottle can be refilled over 20 times on average.Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the responsible reuse, repair, and recycling of electronic products. Those initiatives include promoting public and private partnerships focused on product stewardship and extended producer responsibility; encouraging electronics designs that reduce the need for hazardous chemicals and allow materials to be recovered; working with retailers to expand sustainable options for consumers; and adopting policies that work toward hazardous chemical reduction.With the rapid expansion of technology, electronics such as mobile devices , laptops, computers, servers, routers, monitors, televisions, and printers are continually being replaced, creating a vast amount of e-waste each year. That waste stream only grows bigger and faster as electronics become cheaper (allowing more people to buy them) and as the industry plans obsolescence into its consumer products — encouraging people to buy a new phone every year, for example, and offering replacement products at prices equal to or cheaper than a repair when a computer or tablet is damaged.

This situation has been happening across Pennsylvania and has resulted in many PA counties discontinuing their electronics recycling programs. The Authority had secured an electronics recycler for 2016, but on December 17, 2015 they informed the Authority they would not be able to service the program. The Authority is working on a sustainable solution to address the proper management of electronics waste.The Authority is working with state officials to encourage changes to the Act to enable sustainable recycling of electronics in York County. Residents may also contact Best Buy, Staples, Goodwill and the Salvation Army to determine if their electronics can be accepted there. The Authority established a one day annual electronics recycling program in 2002 and continued it through 2008. Electronic recycling in York County jumped from 820,000 pounds in 2012 to 3,000,000 pounds in 2014.
