LATROBE – Prepare now for Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling’s upcoming Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection, being held on Saturday, November 19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Westmoreland Cleanways Recycling Center, 113 Innovative Lane, Latrobe, PA 15650.

 

Pre-registration is required, and fees will be charged to all participants.

Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling members will receive a $.10 per pound discount on the cost of disposal.

 

ECS&R, a hazardous waste contractor from Crawford County, is handling registration and conducting the event. Register by calling ECS&R at 1-866-815-0016, or visit www.ecsr.net. Registrants will be assigned a time between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., so there will be no lines to contend with. The amount due will be determined on site, depending on the weight of material to be disposed; payment can be made by cash, check (made out to ECS&R), debit or credit card. Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling membership status will be determined before checkout to receive the member discount.

 

Give yourself plenty of time to go through your basement, garage, garden shed, and laundry room to gather all those household substances commonly marked “toxic”, “hazardous”, or “dispose according to local waste regulations”. All paints (latex, oil-based and alkyd paints, lacquers), mineral spirits, thinners, and other solvents will be accepted. Chemicals such as not-quite-empty aerosol cans, automotive fluids, degreasers, drain cleaners, fertilizers, old gasoline and fuel mixes, insecticides, pesticides, pool chemicals, metal polishes, old chemistry sets, wood preservatives and more will be accepted for safe disposal in the most environmentally preferred manner.

 

Material that WILL NOT be accepted include: explosives/ammunition, radioactive waste, medicines or medical waste, smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, or any substance regulated by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.

 

The 2016 Household Hazardous Waste collection is being sponsored in part by PPG Paints. All participants disposing of paint products will receive a coupon good for top-quality PPG Paints products available at their stores in Greensburg and North Huntingdon.

 

For pricing information and to register for the HHW collection, call ECS&R at 1-866-815-0016, or visit www.ecsr.net.
