PA Resources hard-to-recycle, household chemical collections
August 28, 2018
Clean out the basement, the garage and the garden shed. There’s still plenty of time this summer and fall to responsibly dispose of a wide variety of materials – ranging from pesticides and paints to televisions and tires – at upcoming collection events hosted by the Pennsylvania Resources Council.
All events will take place 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Upcoming hard-to-recycle collections in Allegheny County will take place at Century III Mall and Settlers Cabin Park and household chemical collections will take place at Boyce Park and South Park. A household chemical collection will take place in Beaver County at Bradys Run Park.
At the Hard-To-Recycle collections, individuals can drop off “e-waste” such as computer towers and peripheral equipment, cell phones, printer/toner cartridges, CFLs and expanded polystyrene packaging material at no cost.
For a fee, individuals can drop off televisions and computer monitors, alkaline batteries, fluorescent tubes, printers, small Freon appliances and tires.
An upcoming 2018 hard-to-recycle collection is on October 6 at Settlers Cabin Park.
During the Household Chemical Collections, individuals can drop off automotive fluids, household cleaners, pesticides, paints and other household chemicals for a cost of $3/gallon, a few exceptions apply, cash only. New in 2018: collections accept smoke detectors for $3 each.
Upcoming 2018 household chemical collections are on September 22 at South Park, and on October 13 at Bradys Run Park in Beaver County.
