Household chemical collection event Saturday July 27

Do you have hazardous materials, such as paints, pesticides, and household cleaners that you would like to dispose of?  The Pennsylvania Resources Council and Zero Waste Pittsburgh will be collecting these and other items between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 27th in the 2nd Avenue Plaza parking lot located underneath the 10th Street Bridge in Downtown.  There will be a $2 cash-only charge per gallon of chemicals collected. For more information about materials that will be accepted at this collection event, click here or call 412-488-7452.

Can’t make it to the Zero Waste Pittsburgh event?  PHCA volunteers will be taking items to turn in, and we can take your items too.  Polish Hill residents can drop off collection items and the $2 per gallon collection fee (cash only) at the PHCA office on Friday, July 26 between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  This is households only — no businesses and no large quantities.

Please note that items will only be accepted on Friday — our office will be closed on the day of the collection event.  Leaking or broken containers should be wrapped in thick plastic so that contents are completely contained.  For more information on dropping off items, call 412.681.1950, or email us.
