County Recycling Center

The Dauphin County Board of Commissioners opened the Dauphin County Recycling Center (DCRC) in April 2009. The DCRC was established to offer a convenient drop off location for residents, out-of-county residents, businesses, institutions, and local governments to recycle their unwanted or obsolete electronics or appliances, old thermostats containing mercury, and on-site confidential document shredding service.
