The PA Resources Council and its partners will host the first of its five 2017 Hard-To-Recycle Collection Events in Allegheny County on May 13 from 9:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m. at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills, Frazer Township.

This is the 15th year PRC and its partners are coordinating these events.  Since 2003, PRC has collected more than 2 million pounds of electronics waste and 10,000 tires from 23,500 participants in Hard-To-Recycle events.

Individuals can dispose of cell/home phones, CFL bulbs, computer towers and peripheral equipment (keyboards, laptops, mice, UPS/servers, Zip drives, etc.), expanded polystyrene packaging material, microwave ovens, stereo equipment and video game consoles/DVD players at no cost. 

Participants will pay a fee to drop off televisions, computer monitors, printer, alkaline batteries, CDs/DVDs/floppy discs, fluorescent tubes, small Freon appliances, stereo speakers, tires (with and without rims) and VHS tapes.

The other collection dates are--

-- June 24: Quaker Valley High School, Leetsdale, Allegheny County;
