Throughout the spring, summer and fall, the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) will hold events to collect household chemical products known as “household hazardous waste” such as cleaners, paints, stains and varnishes, batteries, motor oil, pesticides and other products containing potentially hazardous chemicals.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, an average home can easily accumulate 100 pounds of these products.
The cost to safely dispose of materials at all collections will be $3/gallon (a few exceptions apply), cash only. The 2019 PRC household chemical collection events in our area are:
• June 22 – Fayette County (Fairgrounds)
• July 20 – Washington County (Wild Things Park)
• Sept. 21 – Allegheny County (South Park)
