City Announces Four Neighborhood Electronic and Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events This Summer

PITTSBURGH, PA (June 30, 2021) The City of Pittsburgh announced today it will host eight electronic waste and household hazardous waste neighborhood collection events on Saturdays this summer and fall. Electronic waste and household hazardous waste includes hard to recycle materials like televisions, computers, paints, batteries, light bulbs, chemicals and more.  

The events are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and advance registration is required. Registration for a five minute appointment can be done online by selecting the preferred event at ecsr.net/pittsburgh-recycling or by calling the City’s 311 line.  

The Department of Public Works Environmental Services Division worked with City Councilmembers to identify locations for neighborhood events throughout regions of the city. The first four scheduled events are:  

  • July 10th 2021 in Overbrook  at Carmalt School, 1550 Breining St, Pittsburgh, PA 15234

Each event can serve up to 240 appointments. Participants are required to drive to the event and must remain in their car for a contactless drop off. Social distancing and face masks are encouraged.  

Fees apply to most items although the City subsidizes these fees to make them more affordable. Accepted materials and fees can be found here.  

The Clean Pittsburgh Commission is sponsoring financial assistance, available to all by selecting the option to apply for financial assistance when scheduling the appointment either online or over the phone.
