Warren County Recycleathon

April 29 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Warren County Recycleathon Flyer DownloadA comprehensive recycling collection event will take place on Saturday, April 29th from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Warren County Fairgrounds (outside the main fence in the grass parking area).

The collection services will be provided by Environmental Coordination Services & Recycling (ECS&R) from Cochranton, PA, which handles a variety of household hazardous waste and electronic waste. All collections on that day are by appointment only. Interested citizens must call 866-815-0016 to make an appointment or go to www.ecsr.net and make an appointment online prior to the event. Citizens will declare what items they are bringing to recycle and the fee will be calculated appropriately. No appointments will be made the day of the event, nor will materials be taken without an appointment. The fees are relative to the type of item being brought and its weight.

Electronics to be collected include computers, televisions, printers, microwaves, stereos, copiers, fax machines, cell phones, air conditioners, and numerous other electronic items. Household hazardous waste items can include aerosols, pool chemicals, paints, gasoline and other fuels, propane tanks, batteries, light bulbs, antifreeze, and a variety of other items. Items that should not be brought include explosives, radioactive materials, ammunition, medical waste, tires, and syringes. Those items will not be accepted. For a complete list of all acceptable items as well as the fees associated with them, read the list below or call the Commissioner’s office at 814-728-3402 for more information.

The County Commissioners would like to thank the Warren County Fairgrounds Administration, for allowing the use of parking space for this event. Having appropriate space, free of charge, for an event like this is a great public service and should be recognized.

The event is at no cost to the county. The only fees are the fees paid directly to ECS&R for collecting the waste materials.

Any questions about this effort can be directed to the Commissioners through Pam Matve, Chief Clerk, by phone at 814-728-3402 or by email at pmatve@warren-county.net.
