The Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) continues to host their 2014 “hard-to-recycle” collection events to enable individuals to drop off e-waste such as computers and televisions, cell phones, printer/toner cartridges, CFLs, microwave ovens, used vegetable/cooking oil and polystyrene packaging material (EPS) at no cost.

“PRC works in partnership with a growing list of sponsors to make free collection of e-waste possible,” said PRC Regional Director Justin Stockdale.  “This year PRC is pleased to work in collaboration with Allegheny County Health Department, Colcom Foundation, Duquesne Light Watt Choices, The Heinz Endowments, LANXESS Corporation and NOVA Chemicals Corporation.”

While most items – including televisions and computers – will be collected free of charge, individuals will pay a nominal fee to drop off alkaline batteries, tires, small Freon appliances, fluorescent tubes, vacuum cleaners and small kitchen appliances.

For a detailed list of items accepted and the price structure, visit www.prc.org or call PRC at 412-488-7490, ext. 236.
