Consumer electronic devices have become integrated into nearly every aspect of our daily lives. But rapid advances in technology and short product lives often render our devices obsolete. For example, the average lifespan of a moderately priced laptop computer is three to five years.

Electronic waste (e-waste) can have a negative impact on our environment if not properly disposed. The Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA) requires manufacturers to provide recycling programs for televisions, desktop and laptop computers, and computer monitors and peripherals sold to consumers in Pennsylvania.

For more specific information regarding e-waste, and how you can become a good environmental steward by recycling your unwanted electronic devices, check out the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
