You can’t put hazardous waste out to the curb for collection; it’s against the law. But there’s a legal way to get rid of it.
Between 9:00 and 1:00 on Saturday, April 6, Cranberry will be hosting a Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste collection conducted by ECS&R Recycling Co. in the Township’s Rt. 19 Public Works building. Advance registration is required by going online to www.ecsr.net, following the prompts, and clicking the April 6 calendar date on the Schedule Appointment page.

- Pharmaceuticals, syringes, medical waste
- Fire extinguishers and smoke detectors
- Devices containing mercury
- Compressed gas canisters
The company has set a schedule of fees. Rates vary with the types and weights of the items being disposed of. Call ECS&R for details at 866-815-0016.
