Fairview Township to Reopen Residential Electronics Recycling Beginning Monday, May 4, 2020
Fairview Township has long offered residents a free electronics recycling collection program that piggybacks onto the York County Solid Waste Authority’s overall electronics recycling program. This spring, Fairview Township suspended the program due to the pandemic, but beginning Monday, May 4, Fairview Township will resume electronics recycling Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
The electronics recycling facility is located at 55 Fairview Road, New Cumberland, PA 17070. Upon arrival, residents will be asked to provide their name and address. In accordance with the Governor’s order, residents must wear a mask or face covering to enter the facility and must maintain social distancing (at least 6 ft. apart from other people).
Fairview Township was established in 1730 and has a total area of 35.7 square miles, of which 35.6 square miles is land and 0.1 square miles, is water. As of the 2010 census, Fairview Township had a population of 16,668. Fairview Township began as an agricultural area, with only a small amount of industry and trade. The development of better highway systems and the suburban growth of the Harrisburg area have resulted in the spread of residential development and influx of commercial and industrial facilities continue to enhance career opportunities and the quality of life for the residents of Fairview Township.
The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, education, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township; and owns and operates a Small Load Drop-off Facility, a Recyclable Materials Drop-off Center and an Education Center.
