PRC Offering FREE Recycling Bins for Northsiders

The Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) will be distributing 32-gallon recycling bins to qualifying residents of the City of Pittsburgh’s Northside neighborhoods. 

Your use of a blue bin can help increase recycling rates, which helps to fight litter, save energy, prevent deforestation, and prevent valuable resources from entering our region’s landfills. Residents who discontinue use of the plastic bags, in favor of a bin, will improve the quality of recycling for themselves and their neighbors. Excess plastic bags cause issues to recycling plants, clogging the machinery, reducing efficiency, and placing employees at risk.

To qualify for a recycling bin, you MUST reside in one of the 18 Northside neighborhoods and you MUST register in advance. A limited number of recycling bins are available. You can register at one of the following locations:
