Montgomery County Recycling Event Schedules for 2018

Montco Recycles

Household Hazardous Waste

In addition to the Montco Household Hazardous Waste flyer, we have attached the five county Regional SEPA HHW flyer.  Montco residents are welcome at the HHW events in Bucks, Chester, and Delaware Counties and Philadelphia at no charge.  Residents have 29 collection event opportunities for HHW from April through November.  There is no drop off location for HHW outside of the County events.

Tires

Tires must legally be recycled and tire retailers will accept used tires for a recycling fee of approximately $3 per tire. Two free tire collection events will be held in 2018 specifically to discourage illegal dumping and the spread of mosquito borne illnesses.

Compost Bin and Rain Barrel Sale

A flyer for a preorder sale of discounted compost bins and rain barrels to be picked up in Norristown is also attached.  Montgomery County has organized this event to encourage composting and rain barrel use; it is not a fundraiser.

Electronic Waste

Montgomery County continues to be unable to hold electronics collection events, as the PA Covered Device Recycling Act still has not been amended.  Although state law requires electronics manufacturers to offer recycling opportunities for TVs and computers, those manufacturers are not sponsoring recycling collections in the Southeastern PA region.  A summary of the situation and a list of drop off sites is available at http://www.montcopa.org/index.aspx?NID=707 .  



Vendors are neither endorsed nor recommended by Montgomery County and other vendors may be in the market.
