Disclaimer: We realize that our program schedule will not meet everyone's needs. We strive to make our events accessible to the greatest number of people in the region we serve. If you are unable to attend, for whatever reason, please consider approaching a friend, neighbor, or relative for assistance.

All event dates and/or locations are subject to change; check back frequently for the most up-to-date list of PRC collections events, hours, fees, and list of acceptable materials.

Do you have household chemical products in the basement, garage and other storage areas of your home?

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, an average home can easily accumulate as much as 100 lbs of cleaners, pesticides, paints, automotive fluids and other products containing hazardous components.
If you or someone you know can’t use them, or if they are simply outdated or no longer needed, please do the right thing for the environment and dispose of them properly at a Household Chemical Collection!

To learn how to safely and properly recycle and dispose of many common household chemicals and other items year-round, please visit our Recycling & Disposal Resources page!

You can also sign up for our E-newsletter to receive additional information on HHW and HHW collections!
