Recycle Polystyrene Packaging


at Hard to Recycle Collections 

 in Pittsburgh

Jump-start your Earth Day weekend Saturday, April 20, from 9 am to 1 pm, at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills with PRC and partners at the first Hard to Recycle Collection of 2013.

NEW THIS YEAR – PRC is partnering with NOVA Chemicals and Appliance Warehouse to collect hard white molded packing material free of charge, at every Hard to Recycle collection. Televisions, computers, cell phones, ink/toner cartridges, CFLs and small appliances will also be collected at no cost.

For a nominal fee, residents can drop off paper for shredding,  alkaline batteries,  fluorescent tubes, specialty lights and small Freon appliances. Click here for a detailed price list.

For more information please visit PRC’s Zero Waste Pittsburgh website or contact Sarah Alessio Shea at 412-488-7490 ext. 246 or saraha@ccicenter.org. Click here to volunteer.
