First of 3 Recyclathons scheduled for April 29

Got electronics or household hazardous waste you want to get rid of?

Warren County is here to help.

After a successful debut last fall, the county will be hosting three Recyclathons, with the first set for April 29 at the Warren County Fairgrounds.

Commissioner Jeff Eggleston said that the event will occur outside the fence in the parking lot. It will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The collection service is provided by Environmental Coordination Services & Recycling, Inc., which is headquartered in Cochranton, Pa.

Eggleston said that anyone interested in taking advantage of the service needs to call to schedule an appointment or arrange that appointment online. That can be done by calling (866) 815-0016 or online at ecsr.net.

He said that the event will “book up incredibly quickly. The last one booked up within a week.”

With three separate events on tap for 2017, Eggleston said the events will occur around the county to “allow as many people to utilize it as possible.”

Electronics, such as computers, televisions and microwaves, and household hazardous waste – for example, aerosol cans, paints and lightbulbs – will be accepted. A complete list of what can be brought to the event can be found at http://warrencountypa.net/recycle/.

The cost for the service is on a per-pound basis: $1.35 for household hazardous waste; $1.32 for universal waste (bulbs and batteries); $6.35 for mercury containing devices; $.45 for all tube/CRT televisions and monitors; $.52 for small freon containing devices; $.25 for all non-CRT devices/other electronics.
