What Items Can Be Disposed Of at the Next Resource Council Collections?
Hard-to-recycle collections in August will allow residents to dispose of e-waste, tires and small Freon appliances.
In a continued effort to enable area residents to recycle responsibly, the Pennsylvania Resources Council will hold two hard-to-recycle collections in Allegheny County next month.
The planned events will accept items that are not able to be recycled via curbside collection, such as e-waste, tires and small Freon appliances.
The events, held in partnership with the Allegheny County Health Department, will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the following dates:
- Saturday, Aug. 12, at Woodland Hills High School, 2550 Greensburg Pike, Churchill
- Saturday, Aug. 26, at Next Tier Connect @ Pittsburgh East, 4350 Northern Pike, Monroeville.
There is a per-item fee (between $2 and $40) to recycle televisions, computer monitors, printers, fluorescent bulbs, small Freon appliances and tires (with and without rims).
A price list and registration information can be found here. Registration may also be made by calling: 412-488-7490.
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.
The 2023 PRC hard-to-recycle collection campaign is sponsored by the 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.
