Susquehanna County Recycling Center notes important change regarding electronics recycling.

Effective immediately, the Susquehanna County Recycling Center will no longer accept electronics for recycling.

The law regarding the disposal of electronics in Pennsylvania (Cover Device Recycling Act) requires an amendment to allow for the continued collection, transportation and recycling of all televisions and computers in Pennsylvania. At this time, there are no electronics recycling companies willing to pick up that type of material from our facility. We appreciate your patience as we work with local legislators and state officials to find a solution to this statewide crisis.

 About Us


FacilityThe Susquehanna County Recycling Center is located on Ellsworth Drive in South Montrose. We are here to serve and assist you with your recycling and waste management needs. Our mission at the recycling center is to maintain the delicate balance of our county’s economic and environmental concerns through a sound waste management program. An effective and self-sustainable recycling program is an important component of the Susquehanna County Municipal Waste Management Plan.

Our goal is to minimize the municipal waste stream by extracting recyclable materials from it. This allows us to help preserve valuable space in the landfills. We then set out to maximize the social, economic, and environmental benefits from these reclaimed recyclables through processing and marketing them.

Since Susquehanna County is rural, with a population of only 42,000 people, it is not feasible to collect, process and sell all the products that are deemed recyclable at this recycling center. Therefore, we have chosen the ones that we can recycle in a way that will maximize the amount of recyclable materials accepted at the center, maximize revenue and minimize expenses for the County Recycling Center.

We are accepting as many recyclable categories as currently feasible, given the geographical location and physical parameters of our recycling center. However, we will continue to pursue new and progressive programs that will promote sustainable social, economic and environmental growth.

We sincerely thank you for your cooperation and vested interest in the recycling effort.
