Collection Events

Approximately 50% of the waste that Americans generate every day is recyclable through traditional recycling systems.  In addition to paper, glass, metal and glass, an additional 20% of our waste is recyclable through specialty recycling programs!

Materials such as electronics, household chemicals, tires and more do not belong in landfills.  Some products contain toxic material that can leach into our waterways or introduce dangerous toxic chemicals into our environment.  Others contain valuable recyclable materials that can negate the need for mining raw materials.

PRC is proud to offer services in Southwestern and Southeastern Pennsylvania to collect these types of materials. We work with local professionals to recycle items into new products or dispose of them with the least environmental impact possible.
