*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.
PLEASE DO NOT DISASSEMBLE TVS – THEY CANNOT ACCEPT THEM FOR PACKAGING AND TRANSPORTATION REASONS!
