Arboretum Recycling Event Returning Feb. 24

UPPER POTTSGROVE PA – The electronic devices and appliances recycling event conducted periodically as a fund-raiser for Althouse Arboretum returns later this month, with an expanded list of materials that can be accepted, a new location to easily accommodate more traffic, and a certified vendor that will ensure proper recycling of all items received.

The four-hour recycling program will be held Feb. 24 (2018; Saturday) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. by GreenAllies, the arboretum’s non-profit manager, at the Hillside Aquatic Club parking lot, 134 W. Moyer Rd. Student volunteers from Pottsgrove High School and elsewhere will be on hand to assist in unloading vehicles.

A $10-per-vehicle fee covers recycling for an unlimited volume of electronic materials, including computer towers, laptop computers, tablets, servers, printers, flat screen monitors, phone systems, game consoles, flat screen televisions of any size, stereos and radios, small appliances, cell phones and calculators, computer ink cartridges, and cords and wires.

Appliances accepted with the vehicle fee include washers and dryers, dishwashers, ranges and stoves, any bulk metal, and microwave ovens.

Additionally, the program will accept other items for recycling at modest fees to cover expenses. Recycling air conditioners and dehumidifiers will cost $5 each; refrigerators, $10; old televisions and computer monitors, $45 for up to 30-inch screens, and $65 for larger sizes.

Recycling will be handled by PAR Recycling Services. For more information, call 267-371-2288 or visit the arboretum website.
