Regional Household Hazardous Waste Events
-In addition to the Montco Household Hazardous Waste events, Montco residents are welcome at the HHW events in Bucks, Chester, and Delaware Counties and Philadelphia at no charge. The links to the other counties’ event web pages are at MontcoPARecycles.org
-Residents have almost 30 collection event opportunities for HHW from April through November.
There is no drop off facility for HHW, the County events are the only option.
-Montgomery County will NOT be holding tire collection events. There are plenty of outlets for tire disposal as tire retailers usually accept used tires for a recycling fee of approximately $3-$5 per tire, see list at https://www.montcopa.org/2021/Tires .
-If a resident has a large number of tires or non-standard tires to dispose of, they should contact our local tire recycling company:
Emanuel Tire of PA
1304 Conshohocken Rd.
Conshohocken, PA 19428
-Montgomery County has an agreement with “Retrievr” for electronic waste pick up and recycling which is available to all residents, see link https://retrievr.com/location/montgomery-county-pa/ .
-Retrievr charges a flat $10 doorstep pickup fee and convenience fees for the following items which are listed here and on the Retrievr webpage:
∙$10 for each microwave
∙$35 for each TV under 150 lbs. and monitors that use a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT)

∙$50 for each dehumidifier
∙$50 for each window air-conditioner
∙$50 for each mini refrigerator under 50 lbs.
-Drop off options are still listed at https://www.montcopa.org/2019/Televisions
-Montco does NOT hold countywide document shredding events, but encourages municipalities to sponsor events for your residents.
-These are popular, as almost everyone has files that need to be shredded, and the County cannot provide events to cover all municipalities. There are many local shred vendors that municipalities can hire to offer this service.
-Community shred events that Montco Recycling becomes aware of are listed at this link: Document Shredding | Montgomery County, PA - Official Website (montcopa.org)
