recycling special events

On Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., bring your unwanted electronic items to the Mt. Lebanon Public Works Facility at 1250 Lindendale Drive, to be properly recycled and help minimize the amount of toxic heavy metals and recoverable materials otherwise destined for our landfills and natural areas. Keyboards, printers and any other device that connects to a computer or television will be accepted, along with cell phones. There is no cost, and remember, under state law you can no longer leave these items at curbside.

Help prevent identity theft by bringing your confidential papers and documents to the public works yard on Saturday, May 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Paper Exchange will shred your items before your eyes. Cost is $5 per box with the first box free. You may pay with cash or checks. You do not need to remove staples, paper clips or plastic binders.
