Tim Parker and Steve Shaw weigh old paint cans during an e-waste recycling day Apr. 29 , 2017 at Richland Twp Municipal Building. Delmont residents now have the ability to arrange e-waste and household hazardous waste pickups through their trash hauler, Republic Services.

Delmont residents now have the ability to dispose of household hazardous waste and e-waste through direct pickups by Republic Services, according to borough Councilman Stan Cheyne.

The free service is available by calling Republic at 877-788-9400 and describing the items to be collected. A special kit and a collection date will be sent to residents with detailed instructions on packaging the items safely and securely.

Items are to be kept secure, rather than at the curb, until they are collected. The only exception is a single item weighing 50 pounds or more, such as a large television, Cheyne said.

A complete list of accepted and non-accepted items is available at the borough's website, as well as in a direct mailer sent to residents.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
