This multi-material recycling collection took place on Saturday, October 22 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Peoples Natural Gas Field, Home of the Altoon Curve with over 50 volunteers helping to make the event run smoothly and unload cars.  Over 400 households participated in the event and recycled nearly 60,000 lbs. of material including many different electronics, appliances, eyeglasses, batteries, boxes, bags, and books.   Most electronics, nearly 45,000 lbs., will be recycled with Reverse Logistics, the current contract holder for the IRC electronics program.  IRC staff safely captured Freon and 7,500 lbs. of appliances were recycled with Charles Caracciolo Steel and Metal yard. Eyeglasses will be redistributed through the Lakemont Lions Club and their Lions Recycle for Sight Program.  Thank you to all who participated and supported the effort.
