Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s local affiliates will hold special waste collection events for Butler, Cambria, Lawrence, Mercer, Washington counties this spring, sponsored in part by the Department of Environmental Protection’s HHW/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 PA beautiful.
Upcoming special collection events include:
-- Keep Cambria County Beautiful, Appliance and Tire Collections, April 23 at Croyle Township Municipal Building, April 30 at Cambria Township Municipal Building and May 21 at Patton Borough Municipal Football Field, all from 8AM - 1PM. For more information contact Mark Stockley at 814-472-2120.
-- Tri-County CleanWays (Butler, Lawrence, Mercer Counties), Tire Recycling Event, May 7 at the Forward Township Municipal Building from 9AM – 1PM. Contact Jerry Zona for more information at 724-658-6925.
-- Washington County Planning Commission in partnership with Keep Washington County Beautiful, Tire Collection, May 14 at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Contact Jason Theakston for more information at 724-228-6811.
