PSCA hosts South Philadelphia Electronic Waste Collection event

    South Philadelphia residents have a chance to un-clutter their closets during today’s Electronic Waste Collection event, sponsored by the Passyunk Square Civic Association.

    Organizers are collecting “anything with a plug,” including household electronics like computers and printers, microwaves, air-conditioners, metals and small appliances. So there’s no need to save those broken house phones, old chargers, or miles of unidentifiable wire, any longer.

    Residents can drop off these items from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. this afternoon, at the ACME on East Passyunk Avenue.

    All electronic waste will be recycled by eForce Compliance, Philadelphia’s only R2 certified e-waste recycler.
