Volunteers Sought for South Side Waste Collection Event

The Southwestern Pennsylvania Household Hazardous Waste Task Force is seeking volunteers to help staff a household hazardous waste collection event on Sept. 27 at Station Square, South Side.

Volunteer tasks include traffic counting, directing traffic, taking surveys, handing out educational literature and checking material in trunks, officials said. Volunteers will not be asked to handle hazardous material or unload vehicles.

Lunch, beverages and a T-shirt will be provided to volunteers. Every volunteer also receives a $10 gift card, free disposal of up to five gallons of household hazardous waste, and a chance to win items donated by local organizations.

For details, call Joy Smallwood at 412-578-8390.
