Electronics Recycling Temporarily Suspended

Westmoreland Cleanways

Due to a recent fire at their Innovative Park facility, Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling announced that they must temporarily suspend recycling of all electronic items, including televisions, computers and peripherals, small appliances, etc.

The Westmoreland Cleanways Recycling Center, located at 113 Innovative Lane in Unity Township, Latrobe, PA, will continue to accept other recyclables such as cardboard, paper, tires, Freon appliances and scrap metal, during normal recycling center hours: Monday Noon to 5 p.m.; Wednesdays and Fridays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.; second Saturday of each month, 8:30 a.m. to Noon.

Executive Director Ellen Keefe states that “we are confident this is a temporary situation and hope to resume electronics collections in the next couple months.” Keefe reminds everyone, “Please do not dump electronics at our door when the Recycling Center is closed. It is considered illegal dumping and violators will be prosecuted. Do not make a difficult situation more difficult by not following the rules.”
