Pennsylvania Resources Council will launch its 2023 Hard-To-Recycle Collection Events in Allegheny County by hosting an event at Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, Frazer Township, on Saturday, June 3, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.  

Throughout the summer and fall, three hard-to-recycle collections held in partnership with the Allegheny County Health Department will enable individuals to responsibly recycle a wide variety of items not accepted in curbside collection such as e-waste, tires and small Freon appliances.

For a $5 participation fee, individuals can drop off unlimited cell/home phones, computer towers and peripheral equipment (keyboards, laptops, mice, etc.), expanded polystyrene packaging material, microwave ovens and video game consoles/DVD players.

For a fee, individuals can drop off televisions and computer monitors, printers, fluorescent tubes, small Freon appliances and tires (with and without rims). Note: $5 participant fee waived if an individual pays fee to dispose of any of these materials.

Participants must register in advance or by calling 412-488-7490 x1.
