May 1: Household Hazardous Waste collection

The Pennsylvania Resources Council and the Southwestern Pennsylvania Household Hazardous Waste Task Force are holding a Household Hazardous Waste collection

Do you have hazardous household products in the basement, garage and other storage areas of your home? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, an average home can easily accumulate as much as 100 lbs of cleaners, pesticides, paints, automotive fluids and other products containing hazardous components. If you or someone you know can’t use them, or if they are simply outdated or no longer needed, please do the right thing for the environment and dispose of them properly at a 2010 SW PA HHW Task Force Collection Event.

To learn how to safely and properly recycle and dispose of many common household chemicals and other items year-round, please visit the Recycling & Disposal Resources page. You can also sign up for the SPAHHW's E-newsletter to receive additional information on HHW and HHW collection events.

9 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the North Park Swimming Pool. More details here.
