Electronic recycling

Tamaqua Borough has a new electronic recycling program for residents in response to new regulations that ban placing those items out for regular trash collection. There are disposal fees attached to the program and a limit of three items per household per month. The disposal fees are $5 for one item, $8 for two items and $10 for three items.

Electronic devices that will be accepted include desktop computers, laptops, monitors, televisions and computer peripherals such as keyboards, printers, mouse or other devices connected to a computer.

This is a drop-off program, so items must be transported to the drop-off site by first contacting someone at borough hall.

For more information, visit the Tamaqua Municipal Building at 320 E. Broad St., Tamaqua, or call 570-668-3444 or 570-668-0300, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Proof of residency will be required.
