Volunteers needed for collection

The Southwestern Pennsylvania Household Hazardous Waste Task Force is looking for volunteers to help staff a household hazardous waste collection event on Saturday, April 26, at Settlers Cabin Park Wave Pool.

Volunteer tasks include traffic counting, directing traffic, taking surveys, handing out educational literature and checking materials in trunks. No volunteers will be asked to handle hazardous materials or unload vehicles.

Volunteers may work a full-day shift, 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or half-day shifts, 7 to 11:30 a.m. or 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Lunch, beverages and a T-shirt will be provided.

Every volunteer also receives a $10 gift card, free disposal of up to five gallons of household hazardous waste, and a chance to win items donated by local organizations.

The event is co-sponsored by the Allegheny County Health Department. Call or email the Health Department's Recycling Officer Joy Smallwood at 412-578-8390 or jsmallwood@achd.net to volunteer.
