2021 Electronics & Household Hazardous Waste Collections
The District partners with ECS & R to hold several special collections each year. This fall residents can attend the Smethport event on Oct. 2 at the Conservation District/County Complex. You must pre-register for either event at www.ecsr.net, locating the event on the right hand side. There is a cost per pound of material, and prices on the flyer are at a discounted rate thank you to a grant from the PA Dept. of Environmental Protection. Questions or need more information? Call 814-887-4020.
Recycling programs in McKean County vary by municipality. Several boroughs have curbside pickup of recyclables. Drop off bins are another option for rural residents or those in communities without pickup.
McKean County provides a drop-off recycling center in Smethport next to the 911 Center which is free for anyone to use. The center is zero-sort; but materials need to be clean. See brochure below for accepted materials. Do not deposit plastic bags in the bin. Do not open the bin door while the compactor is running. This service is provided by the county and staffed by the Good Growing Gardens program.
The recycling center is open weekdays and exact hours vary with the 3G schedule.
Center is closed on holidays. Access fobs ($10 to obtain; $5 annually to renew) are available in the McKean County Planning Office for evening and weekend use.
