Pennsylvania Resources Council will launch its 2023 Hard-to-Recycle Collection Campaign with an event at Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, Frazer, on Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Throughout the summer and fall, three hard-to-recycle collections held in partnership with the Allegheny County Health Department will enable individuals to responsibly recycle a wide variety of items not accepted in curbside collection, such as e-waste, tires and small Freon appliances, according to a PRC news release.

For a $5 participant fee, individuals can drop off unlimited cell or home phones, computer towers and peripheral equipment (keyboards, laptops, mice, etc.), expanded polystyrene packaging material, microwave ovens, and video game consoles and DVD players.

For a fee, individuals can drop off televisions and computer monitors, printers, fluorescent tubes, small Freon appliances and tires (with and without rims). Note: The $5 participant fee is waived if an individual pays a fee to dispose of any of these materials.

Participants must register in advance at or by calling 412-488-7490, ext. 1.


All events take place on Saturdays from 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

  •  June 3 — Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, Frazer.
  • Aug. 26 — Next Tier Connect @ Pittsburgh East, Monroeville.
  • Oct. 7 — Settlers Cabin Park Wave Pool, Robinson.

The 2023 PRC hard-to-recycle collection campaign is sponsored by Allegheny County Health Department, Colcom Foundation, Frazer Township, Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, LANXESS, Pennsylvania American Water, and 100.1 FM and AM 1020 KDKA, according to the news release.
