The Allegheny County Health Department will be hosting a drop-off collection of hard-to-recycle items this Saturday, May 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside the ACHD Clack Health Center in Lawrenceville. People are encouraged to bring items like televisions, computers, appliances, and tires to the event where they can be handed over to the ACHD along with a nominal fee to be recycled. ACHD spokesman Guillermo Cole says the event is a great way to prevent littering which can have serious environmental and public health consequences. Two similar events are scheduled for June and September. For more information, people are encouraged to call the Pennsylvania Resources Council at 412-431-4449.
