Cumberland County Electronics Recycling Center is Now Open

 Cumberland County Electronics Recycling Center
Is Now Open

Cumberland County has established an Electronics Recycling Center at 1001 Claremont Road, Carlisle. The cash fee for all accepted electronics is $0.50/pound. There will be a 1.5% convenience fee for debit card users and a 2.5% convenience fee for credit card users. The minimum debit and credit card convenience fee is $2.50. Sorry, checks are not accepted. The fee offsets the County’s costs for collecting, packaging, loading, shipping and recycling electronics and does not generate a profit. Anyone, regardless of place of residence, is able to use the recycling center assuming fees are paid in full.
