Pennsylvania Resource Council Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Accumulating personal care, cleaning, pesticides, automotive and home repair chemicals creates exposure risks at home that may result in people getting sick. Proper disposal minimizes risks at home and in the environment and prevents unnecessary health threat.

UPMC continues to be a proud cosponsor of the Southwestern Pa Household Hazardous Waste collection events for nearly a decade.
