The Meadville Tribune – A grand plan to keep televisions and other electronics out of landfills is working — just maybe not the way anyone had hoped.
People can no longer throw away TVs with their curbside trash collection, but they're struggling to find anyone willing to take them.
The dilemma dates to 2013, when Pennsylvania made it illegal to throw out televisions and computer monitors.
The Covered Device Recycling Act “was supposed to make electronics recycling free for the consumer,” said Robert Huntington, recycling coordinator for Union County.
Instead, it has just made things more challenging.
