Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s local affiliates Keep Cambria County Beautiful, Tri-County CleanWays (Butler, Lawrence, Mercer counties) and Keep Washington County Beautiful are holding special collections this spring, sponsored in part by the Department of Environmental Protection’s Household Hazardous Waste/Small Business Hazardous Waste Collection Program.
“This program allows our affiliates to provide convenient, low cost collections for their residents for otherwise hard to dispose of items. The tires and appliances that are collected at these events won’t end up over the hill where they would be difficult and costly to remove,” said Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “I applaud our affiliates for providing this annual service. It allows residents to plan for proper disposal.”
Upcoming special collection events include:
— Keep Cambria County Beautiful, Appliance and Tire Collections, April 25 at Croyle Township, May 2 at Patton Borough and May 9 at Cambria Township, all from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.. For more information contact Mark Stockley at 814-472-2120.
