The Cumberland County Commissioners have approved the development and operation of a permanent electronics recycling center with plans to open this summer. Earlier this year, the Commissioners selected Sunnking, Inc., Brockport, NY, from amongst four recyclers that submitted proposals to transport and recycle electronics collected by the County. Unfortunately, none of the proposals were backed by equipment manufacturer funding as Pennsylvania’s electronics recycling law had intended to provide.
As a result, the County will charge customers $.50 per pound of electronics recycled. The fee will offset the County’s costs for collecting, packaging, loading, shipping and recycling electronics and does not generate a profit. Customers will NOT be able to recycle electronics for free. Anyone regardless of place of residence will be able to use the recycling center assuming fees are paid in full.
