e-Waste Policy Iron City Express C&D Processing Facility

The Construction & Demolition (C&D) processing facility on location at Iron City Express only receives loads defined as C&D waste.  Any load that is observed to be contaminated by any other waste, will be rejected when scaling in.   At times, there are loads which are contaminated by waste other than C&D that is not able to be observed before the load is dumped. Any non-C&D waste will then be bypassed in the sorting facility and properly disposed of. 

One of these types of prohibited materials is classified as e-waste.  In accordance with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania laws, any e-waste that has been bypassed will be collected and properly recycled at an approved facility.  The approved facilities closest to us are E-cycling in South Side or various Best Buy locations, as per the Allegheny Health Department “Recycling Resource Directory”.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania defines e-Waste as:

  • Desktop computers
  • Laptop computers
  • Computer monitors
  • Computer peripherals
  • Televisions
