Posted by: Sarah Shea on May 15, 2019

Wondering how to responsibly dispose of the many unwanted materials you might find around your house or in your basement or garage?

Finding answers is as easy as contacting the PA DEP Recycling Hotline operated by the Pennsylvania Resources Council.  Call 1-800-346-4242 to quickly gain answers regarding how to responsibly recycle a wide range of materials not suitable for curbside pick up.

Last year, a team of PRC employees staffing the recycling hotline responded to 2,610 calls from residents living in 58 counties across the Commonwealth.

While many callers requested information regarding proper disposal of tires, polystyrene, mattresses and other hard-to-recycle materials, the three most common inquiries sought options for disposing of e-waste (televisions, computers, etc.), household chemicals (paints, automotive fluids, pesticides, etc.) and appliances.

Call the PA DEP Recycling Hotline at 1-800-346-4242 weekdays from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. for recycling  guidance.  After-hours calls are returned the following business day.
