Covanta Partners with Pennsylvania County for E-Waste Recycling

ECOvanta will provide electronic waste recycling services for Lancaster County, Pa., through a new partnership.

ECOvanta, the e-waste recycling subsidiary of Morristown, N.J.-based Covanta Energy Corp., said in a news release it will provide services to the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA) household hazardous waste facility.

Philadelphia-based ECOvanta will transport the household hazardous waste operation’s e-waste, including computers, monitors, mobile phones, printers and televisions to its Philadelphia facility for dismantling, shredding or aggregating for reuse and recycling.

ECOvanta holds both e-Stewards and Responsible Recycling (R2) environmental certifications.

Covanta and LCSWMA have had a partnership going back to the early 1990s. Covanta operates LCSWMA’s waste-to-energy facility.
