In August, Pennsylvania Resources Council will host two hard-to-recycle collection events to enable residents to responsibly recycle a wide variety of items not accepted in curbside collections, such as e-waste, tires and small Freon appliances.
These events held in partnership with the Allegheny County Health Department will take place:
Saturday, Aug. 12, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Woodland Hills High School, 2550 Greensburg Pike, Pittsburgh, PA 15221
Saturday, Aug. 26, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Next Tier Connect @ Pittsburgh East, 4350 Northern Pike, Monroeville, PA 15146
For a per-item fee, individuals can recycle televisions and computer monitors, printers, fluorescent tubes, small Freon appliances and tires (with and without rims), according to a news release. Visit the PRC website for a price list.
Those not paying a per-item fee for disposal of materials listed above will pay a $5 participant fee for unlimited disposal of cell/home phones, computer towers and peripheral equipment (keyboards, laptops, mice, etc.), expanded polystyrene packaging material, microwave ovens and video game consoles/DVD players.
Participants must register in advance at www.prc.org/CollectionEvents or by calling 412-488-7490.
The 2023 PRC hard-to-recycle collection campaign is sponsored by Allegheny County Health Department, Colcom Foundation, LANXESS, Pennsylvania American Water, Styropek, and 100.1 FM and AM 1020 KDKA in partnership with Appliance Warehouse, eLoop llc and Liberty Tire.
The final hard-to-recycle collection of the 2023 season will take place Oct. 7 at Settlers Cabin Park’s wave pool parking lot in Robinson.
