Montgomery County
Electronic Waste Program

Due to extenuating circumstances, Montgomery County will not be able to offer electronics collection events in 2015. Upper Dublin Township will be sponsoring 2 electronic collections in 2015 - April 18 and September 12, 9a-1p at the Township Building. Concern about the lack of county collection events should be directed to the appropriate State Representative and Senator. Haulers and disposal sites are prohibited from accepting TVs and computers as trash, and without recycling opportunities, residents may resort to dumping. An amendment to the state electronics recycling law, called the Covered Device Recycling Act, is needed to ensure the availability of recycling outlets.

For additional information on collection locations and items, please call the Montgomery County Recycling Hotline:
(610) 278-3618 or visit their web page Montgomery County Recycles

Paint Disposal

Water-based or latex paint may be placed out with your regular trash if the lid is off the can and the paint is completely dry. If there is a small quantity of paint in the can, remove the lid and let is stand in a well-ventilated area away from children and pets until dry. For larger quantities of paint or to speed up the drying process, stir in an absorbent like kitty litter, vermiculite, sawdust, or shredded paper. Once completely dry; discard with your regular trash.
