Leftover household products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides, that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when you dispose of them.
Improper disposal of HHW can include pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or in some cases putting them out with the trash. The improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health.
ECSR provides Homeowners with several options for the safe and economical disposal of Household Hazardous Waste.

The Connoquenessing Creek Cleanup Project is an annual event formed by Allegheny Aquatic Alliance in 2012 for the restoration of this important local waterway. Tackling 10-20 mile sections each summer, we aspire to clean the entire creek by removing the physical pollution that consumes it. Connoquenessing Creek was once a beautiful, unspoiled waterway but due to decades of abuse and neglect, it has tragically become an endangered natural resource. It was rated the 2nd most polluted waterway in America in 2000! For years, waste has been directly dumped into the creek by illegal dumping and annual flooding and tires that were once used to stabilize the creek banks are now falling into the water. Please help us restore this vital waterway back to its beautiful, natural state by becoming a volunteer or sponsor. So far we have removed over 360,000 pounds of garbage, including over 4,000 tires from 40 miles of the 50-mile creek!
