Cumberland County to Begin E-Recycling
WHERE: Cumberland County “Barn” 1000 Claremont Road, Carlisle WHEN: Grand Opening Projected for June 2017
The Cumberland County Commissioners recently authorized staff to finalize a contract with a recycler to operate an electronics recycling facility in Middlesex Township. The County will be making changes to its “barn” located at 1000 Claremont Road to serve as the electronic recycling facility. The county will charge customers $.50 per pound of electronics recycled. The fee offsets the County’s costs of operating the site and does not generate a profit. Customers will not be able to recycle electronics for free. Acceptable materials include: televisions, computers & accessories, mobile devices, entertainment equipment and office equipment. If you have any questions, please call the County’s Recycling and Waste Authority at 717-240-5362.
