Computers must be recycled according to PA State Law. They contain heavy metals which may be toxic if not handled properly. Below are a few options for proper computer and electronics recycling. 

Check with the manufacturer or retail outlet to see if a take-back, drop off, donation or mail-back program is available.

Municipalites will sometimes hold electronics collections for their residents. Check with your municipality for dates. 

Best Buy and Staples stores run a year round electronics recycling program accepting computers and various electronics - NO TVs or monitors. Items will be taken for recycling at no charge and with no purchase required. Check their websites under recycling for details.
