Humane Society To Hold Electronic Recycling Event

The Western Pennsylvania Humane Society and Allegheny County have partnered with EarthEcycle to hold a free electronics recycling event. The event begins on March 28th and will last through April 11th. There will be six locations throughout the county where people can drop off their electronic devices. North Park, South Park, Boyce Park and Settlers Cabin Park will have collection points at the swimming pool parking lots. Round Hill Park will have a collection point at the Duck Pond Parking lot and the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society will collect at their north shore shelter parking lot. Recycling items is free. The EarthEcycle group will collect the electronics and for every 100,000 pounds will donate $10,000 to the Humane Society with a goal of $100,000. EarthEcycle is able to make a profit on their collections by selling newer electronics to small churches, governments and schools throughout the world.

You can find more details about the types of items accepted and dropoff hours on the Humane Society's website.
