ELECTRONIC RECYCLING

Effective January 2011, all municipalities were required to start picking up electronics waste as a separate pickup for recycling.  The following items are picked up on your regular trash day:

  • 15, 17, 19 and 21 inch monitors, flat screens and all-in-ones      
  • All type of memory 
  • Televisions (no consoles)
  • Any hard drives 
  • Towers, desktops and laptops
  • Fans and power supplies 
  • Uninterrupted power supply (i.e. batter backup units) 
  • Mother, B, C, Tweener and Finger Boards 
  • Keyboards, mouse and speakers 
  • AC Adaptors, yokes and motors 
  • All type of wire 
  • Plastic, tied in bundles (baled) or loose (i.e. computer shells, casings, etc.) 
  • Gold clip ends 
  • Aluminum, brass, light iron and copper 
  • Printers, fax machines, scanners, modems, copy machines 
  • Metals, tied in bundles (baled) or loose 
  • Any and all related computer parts
  • VCR’s, DVD’s, CD players, boomboxes
  • Phones, cell phones, pagers, cell phone and laptop batteries
  • Any audio and visual equipment
  • PC scrap and stereos (NO WOOD)
  • Cash Registers and scales (electronic or mechanical)
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Household appliances not containing compressors

These items should be put curbside on the ground separate from your normal recycling (paper, cans, bottles, plastic jugs, etc). A separate truck will pick these items up on your regular trash day.

Console televisions must be broken apart and the electronics portion (tv set) separated from the wooden console for curbside pickup. The Borough cannot take a console unit unless it is broken apart as we cannot lawfully dispose of the electronics portion in the trash stream nor will our electronics recycling service accept the wooden console. If a resident does not want to separate the electronics from the wooden console, they can take the entire unit to Best Buy or another electronics store for recycling.
