What Makes an Old TV or Computer Monitor Hard to Dispose of and What Can I Do About it?

While these items can be taken apart to recover certain materials such as metals and plastics, Bucks County lacks reliable financial resources to support collection events. People who have old TVs or computers are urged to:

  • Check with local municipalities to see if they might be holding an E-waste event
  • Check for local private vendors who accept those items. They can be found on the Bucks County Recycling page.
  • Voice your frustration by calling the DEP Electronic Recycling Hotline at 1-800-346-4242.
  • Urge state representatives to support legislation with new approach.

Why Can't Plastic Bags Be Recycled?

Plastic bags are not recyclable because they cause a number of issues with the sorting machines if they get caught and tangled up. Recyclables should be put into bins loose and without being wrapped up in a plastic bag. Local retailers and large grocery stores may accept them. It is highly recommended to start using reusable bags when shopping because they are a good sustainable alternative.

Are All Plastics the Same and How Should I Recycle Them?

Unfortunately, not all plastic is the same and not all plastics are recyclable. Plastics may have different strength, flexibility, heat resistance, and transparency that come from different chemical formulations. Most plastic packaging has a resin identification code ranging from one to seven. One, two and five are the most accepted but it is suggested to check with individual municipalities or your recycling collector to see which ones are accepted. When recycling, make sure everything that is put into the bin is clean, dry and empty.

Why Isn't Everything Able to be Recycled?

Recyclables are considered commodities which are useful, raw materials that are bought and sold. Recycled items are processed into new items after being sorted, baled, and transported. It is important to only recycle what is accepted by your collector. Items that are not able to be recycled can contaminate the recycling stream, damage equipment, and will end up as trash. The most frequently found contaminants are plastic bags, textiles, food, diapers, and wires. If you are unsure if an item gets recycled or not, it is safer to do more research or throw it out.

Are Natural Resources Saved When I Recycle?

The short answer to that question is, yes! Recycling helps us save nonrenewable natural resources such as aluminum and iron that are mined and petroleum oil that needs to be drilled from the earth. While paper is recycled and it does come from trees that are a renewable resource, it does take a number of years for a tree to grow large enough to be used to create paper. By recycling, less minerals need to be mined or drilled from the earth and less trees need to be chopped down which saves energy.

The Waste Hierarchy

Bucks County has their own waste hierarchy which examines the habits of the individual and changes that can be made to live more sustainable. The upside-down triangles goes like this:

  • Avoid: Do I need it? Before purchasing an item, think if the item is something that you need. This is at the very beginning when the consumer is still thinking about the item.
  • Reduce: Can I use Something Else? Reduce the amount of waste produced if there is something else that can be used.
  • Reuse: Can I use it again? Create less waste by using some items more than once such as clothes and plastic containers.
  • Recycle: Can it be made into something new?
  • Recover: Can it be used as fuel or electricity?
  • Dispose
