Unwrap the new and recycle your old TVs and electronics at Cumberland County’s Electronic Recycling Center, located at 1001 Claremont Road, Carlisle, PA. This facility is open to anyone regardless of where they reside since it is a fee-based facility. See costs below.
Why should I recycle my electronics at the Cumberland County facility when other recycling options (i.e. Best Buy, Staples) exist?
Due to limitations created by Pennsylvania’s 2010 electronics recycling law, there is a lack of recycling opportunities for televisions. The County’s facility helps fill that recycling gap.
Televisions are the most difficult and most expensive of electronics to recycle, which is why it’s so hard to find a place to recycle them. They will gladly accept the other electronics on their acceptable items list but want the public to know that recycling outlets for the other electronics may exist at better rates.
