Far more than the illegal dumping of paper, plastic, and aluminum cans, the massive amounts of electronic waste that are currently being discarded pose a looming threat to the environment in Pennsylvania and every other state in the country.


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that electronic waste (e-waste) is the fastest-growing waste stream in America. As much as 50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed of annually. The good news is that, with Newtech Recycling, businesses in Pennsylvania can now dispose of their computers, hard drives, and other types of obsolete electronics in a safe, sustainable manner.

What Is E-Waste?

When the “useful life” of a product is reached, either through obsolescence or damage, the item becomes waste. The term “e-waste” was coined to describe electronic products that are thrown away by consumers.


Some of the products that fall under e-waste include but are not limited to



Many of the materials contained in these items can be reclaimed and recommissioned, which is why we focus on e-waste recycling in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.


However, when electronics are thrown away and sent to landfills, some of those materials can seep into the ground and adversely affect the environment. With only 12.5 percent of e-waste recycled, Pennsylvanians can participate in proper electronic recycling and help mitigate the impact of this rapidly growing environmental issue.


To cut back on the improper disposal of e-waste, Pennsylvania passed the Covered Device Recycling Act. This legislation has made it illegal to throw out televisions and other electronic devices improperly. Our company helps the citizens of Pennsylvania stay on the right side of the law by responsibly recycling their old televisions and other electronic devices. 

Here are some of the recycling services we offer.

Computer Recycling in Pennsylvania 

In 2012, the EPA reported that 142,000 computers were disposed of daily. Computers are made of many different materials, many of which are classified as toxic. The metals contained within computers are of particular concern. Toxic metals such as lead, cadmium, and chromium cause environmental harm when they are exposed to landfills and water systems and when they are incinerated.


The World Health Organization highlights the fact that children are the most vulnerable to the toxicity of these materials. This is why residents and businesses must participate in e-waste recycling in Pennsylvania. At Newtech Recycling, we can salvage and recycle old computers to prevent toxic materials from entering the environment. 

Cell Phone Recycling in Pennsylvania

According to the EPA, there are approximately 416,000 mobile phones discarded every day. The same toxic elements contained in computers are also present in cell phones. The use of approved electronic recycling processes in Pennsylvania by certified companies helps keep harmful waste from reaching our water sources, air, and landfills.


Television Recycling in Pennsylvania

Television technology has undergone many changes over the past decade. However, one thing that has not changed is the fact that there are elements in these devices that are considered toxic waste.


While your old TV set may not be valuable to you, there are valuable metals found in older CRTs monitors. CRT TVs typically contain copper, gold, iron, steel, and other metal components, all of which can be refined to manufacture new products. When we recycle old TVs, we remove the toxic materials, recycle the components we can, and then dispose of the rest.
