Goodwill stores across 22 counties in Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania will now accept electronic recyclables for free.

Do you have old computers, printers, TVs, and other electronics piling up that you have no idea what to do with? Now, residents in central and southeastern Pennsylvania have more options to recycle those electronics for free.

Goodwill Keystone Area has partnered with e-waste vendor Reworld to offer residents across 22 counties a convenient way to drop off their old electronics items. A response to the state’s critical need, this initiative expands electronic recycling options under the PA Covered Device Recycling Act 108. In 2023, the state only had nine e-waste recycling sites that would accept any electronic device for recycling at no cost, without limitations, according to the Pennsylvania Recycling Market Center.

The new Goodwill program instantly adds 42 more places that will accept items.
