PRC 2022 COLLECTION SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED

Posted by: Mary Beth Mueller on March 9, 2022

2022 COLLECTIONS TO ACCEPT E-WASTE, TIRES, SMALL FREON APPLIANCES, HOUSEHOLD CHEMICALS AND MORE

Mark your 2022 calendar now for dates to drop off a wide variety of materials – ranging from computers and tires to household chemicals and smoke detectors – at upcoming collection events sponsored by the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) and its partners.

“PRC provides residents with numerous options to conveniently and cost-effectively dispose of a wide variety of materials not accepted in curbside pickup,” according to PRC Executive Director Darren Spielman.  “It’s important to divert these materials from landfills since many contain toxic elements that can leach into our waterways or introduce dangerous toxic chemicals into our environment, while others contain valuable recyclable materials.”

“This year marks PRC’s 20th season of hosting hard-to-recycle and household chemical collection events,” said Spielman.  “We are proud of the positive impact we’ve had on the environment.  The success and growth of PRC programs is the result of a team effort, and we thank our many partners, funders, volunteers, supporters and individuals who have participated in our events over the years.  We invite those just learning of these vital programs to join us in 2022.”

All collections are drive-thru events, so participants should place all materials in their car trunks or truck beds and stay in their vehicles while contractors unload the materials at the events.
