Recycle Ink Cartridges, Cell Phones, Rechargeable Batteries, Eyeglasses in Forest Hills

Collection boxes are located in the main office at the borough building on Ardmore Boulevard.

Wondering what to do with those empty printer cartridges? Cell phones? Rechargeable batteries? Old eyeglasses?

Inside the main office door of the Forest Hills Borough Building on Ardmore Boulevard are boxes to collect those items for recycling.

Nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride, lithium ion, nickel zinc and small sealed lead rechargeable batteries can be dropped off for recycling, as well as used cell phones.

Both ink jet and laser printer cartridges are accepted, too.

Proceeds from recycling will be used for recreational equipment for the borough's parks.

Forest Hills Lions Club also has a box to accept donations of used eyeglasses to help children and adults who cannot afford them.

This is great but my work hours don't allow me to get to the borough building while it is open. It would be nice if there was a more accessible place to put these items.

I use e-ReUse.com & sell my cell phones directly to them. But, they take donations of cell phones and you can designate ANY charity to receive them!
