The Bucks County Planning Commission has released a 2017 resource guide for disposal of your old TVs.

Your waste hauler is not permitted to accept electronic devices such as laptops, computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, and televisions with the regular trash. Under the PA Covered Device Recycling Act of 2010 (Act 108 of 2010), these items must be sent to an electronics recycler. The law also requires manufacturers of covered devices to host one-day events to collect, transport, and recycle these items or institute permanent collection programs or mail-back options. This section of the law has not been implemented. Please contact your state representative to request action.

Bucks County does not collect Electronics at its annual Hazardous Waste Collection events.
