PA Resources Council To Host 2 Hard-To-Recycle Collection Events In Allegheny County During August

In August, the
Pennsylvania Resources Council will host two hard-to-recycle collection events in Allegheny County to enable area residents to conveniently dispose of numerous items not suitable for curbside recycling: 

-- August 21: from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Next Tier Connect at Pittsburgh East, Monroeville. Registration now open at

-- August 28: from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Bethel Park High School, registration opens July 27

Participants will pay a fee to dispose of some materials (such as televisions and tires) while other items (such as cell phones and computer towers) will be accepted for free.

-- For a fee, individuals can drop off televisions, computer monitors, printers, fluorescent tubes, small Freon appliances and tires (with and without rims).

-- At no cost, individuals can drop off cell/home phones, computer towers and peripheral equipment (keyboards, laptops, mice, etc.), expanded polystyrene packaging material, microwave ovens, video game consoles/DVD players and glass bottles, jugs and jars.

All participants must register in advance either online, or by calling 412-488-7490×3.  

“To streamline the process at PRC events, we continue to require advanced registration for all attendees," according to PRC Interim Managing Director Sarah Alessio Shea.  "Out of an abundance of caution, we ask participants to pack all materials in their car trunks or truck beds and then stay in their vehicles while the contractor unloads the materials.”

The 2021 PRC hard-to-recycle collection campaign is sponsored by Allegheny County Health Department, Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania, Colcom Foundation, Frazer Township, LANXESS, Pennsylvania American Water, and 100.1 FM and AM 1020 KDKA.  The August events are held in partnership with Next Tier Connect at Pittsburgh East and Bethel Park High School.
