Collection Events Success!

Posted by: Mary Kate Ranii on November 13, 2017

For 15 years, PRC has been working with communities, volunteers, and partners to collect toxic and specialty items to be responsibly managed and recycled. From televisions & computer monitors, to paints & household cleaners, to pharmaceuticals & tires PRC hosts collection across southwestern Pennsylvania every year to ensure that residents have access to safe disposal options and that our waste doesn’t harm the environment!

By dumping household chemicals or medications down the drain, or by placing electronics in curbside trash cans, harmful materials ranging from lead to mercury to brominated flame retardants and more can end up in drinking water or contaminating public land.

PRC works hard to collected these materials at one-day drop-off events. In 2017:

Thanks to everyone who made the 2017 Collection Season a huge success! PRC would like to extend a special thank you to each and every one of our dedicated volunteers. Volunteers work hard to serve Pennsylvania residents, rain or shine, and ensure that materials are recycled and properly managed.

Over the last several years, volunteers from NOVA Chemicals have really stepped up to help PRC provide these vital services to Pennsylvania residents. In 2017 alone, staff from NOVA Chemicals have provided over 200 hours of volunteer time to PRC! To Nova Chemicals, our volunteer and contractor team, participants, partners and sponsors, thank you for another successful year! We couldn’t have done it without you!
