Pennsylvania Resources Council PRC
Collection Regulations and Information

Since 2003, PRC has held Hard to Recycle collections in Southwestern PA with the goal of providing responsible and convenient recycling for items not able to be recycled at the curb. At these events individuals have been able to recycle such item as e-waste, cell phones, polystyrene, compact fluorescent bulbs, alkaline batteries, Freon-containing appliances, tires and more.

Over the past twelve years, 20,000 plus residents have participated in PRCs collection events recycling 1,690,000 pounds of electronics, 8,800 plus tires, 2,400 Freon containing appliances and much more.

PRC partners with local companies to ensure responsible and proper disposal of all materials collected at their events. Their electronic recycler eLoop LLC is a local company based in Plum Borough, and a Basel Action Network e-steward. As a certified e-steward, eLoop adheres to the highest industry standard for recycling responsibility which ensures no disposal in landfills or incinerators, no prison labor, nor any export of toxics to poor communities. PRCs other Hard to Recycle partners include the Allegheny County Health Department, NOVA Chemicals, and Appliance Warehouse.
