[UPDATE] April 14, 2015
I was notified today that effective immediately the recycling center on Boulevard Avenue will no longer accept electronics of any kind.
Municipal truck and residents have been turned away today. There was no advance notice.
I contacted Andy Wascura who oversees operation of the recycling center for clarification on the status of electronic recycling. He stated that he is unsure of when/if they will accept electronics either in the near future or long range.
Contacting some local vendors that have accepted electronics in the past, I have the following information to offer:
- Best Buy 570-346-8977 accepting 3 electronic items/day/customer – no fee
Including: up to 50” flatscreen TVs; up to32” tube TVs ; laptops, computers and peripherals
- Elmwood Specialized 570-969-9040 accepting all electronics except monitors or TVs
- Staples 570-342-5138 accepting 5 electronic items/day/customer except monitors or TVs
- Target 570-383-7100 accepting cell phones and ink cartridges no other electronics
I know this is the time for Spring Clean Ups in many municipalities. I promise to keep you updated as I learn anything else on this matter.
Turning you away at the gate is just not something I want to hear happens again.

With a continuous effort to provide better services, Moosic Borough Officials recently approved the funding of a new bulk salt storage facility. Adequate bulk storage assures enough salt to fight winter storms, without the problem of arranging emergency shipments throughout the winter months. This facility can go a long way toward guaranteeing sufficient salt when it is needed to maintain a high level of winter maintenance for the safety of our residents and motorists. More importantly proper storage inside a building or under cover will also prevent possible detrimental effects on the environment, when salt is stored outside, runoff must be properly controlled. This new addition would not be possible without the cost saving construction efforts of the Department of Public Works. Great Job!
The Moosic Borough Street Department will NOT be closed on Monday, January 20, 2014 in observance of Martin Luther King Day. Garbage & Recycling will be collected on schedule this week.
