PRC is Pennsylvania’s oldest grassroots environmental organization. Since 1939 we have worked to protect the Commonwealth’s resources for future generations through environmental education, recycling and waste diversion programs, anti-litter campaigns and much more.
Recognized as a state and national leader in waste reduction and recycling, the remainder of PRC's work focuses on litter and visual blight prevention, watershed awareness, and composting. PRC sponsors many Hard-to-Recycle, E-Waste, Household Chemical and Pharmaceutical Collections throughout Pennsylvania every year.
The strength of PRC's programs is derived from its continuing efforts to bring people, businesses, and government together to prevent and solve environmental problems. PRC has offices in Pittsburgh at the CCI Center in the South Side, and in eastern Pennsylvania at the Environmental Living Demonstration Center in Ridley Creek State Park, Delaware County.
