PA Resources Council Announces 5 Upcoming Recycling, Safe Disposal Collection Events In Allegheny, Beaver, Delaware Counties

Clean out the basement, the garage and the garden shed!  

There’s still plenty of time left in 2023 to responsibly dispose of a wide variety of materials ranging from pesticides and paints to televisions and tires at upcoming collection events hosted by Pennsylvania Resources Council.

“PRC provides residents with numerous options for the recycling and safe management of a wide variety of materials not accepted in curbside pickup,” according to PRC Executive Director Darren Spielman.  “It’s important to manage these materials the right way because many contain toxic elements that can leach into our waterways or introduce dangerous toxins into our environment, while others contain valuable recyclable resources.”
