Musical instruments that are in good working condition can sometimes be donated. An internet search such as “donate (piano, drums, etc.) York PA” will show organizations that accept these items for donation.
Electronic musical organs and keyboards may be recycled at the York County Solid Waste Authority’s free Electronics Recycling Program (for more information click here).
Pianos cannot be processed at the York County Resource Recovery Center and must be disposed of at Modern Landfill (717-246-2686).
Except pianos, musical instruments may also be disposed in the regular trash, placed at the curb for large item disposal, or disposed at the York County Resource Recovery Center (YCRRC).
