The Pennsylvania Resources Council is seeking volunteers to assist with a Household Chemicals Collection hosted by Cal U in the Adamson Stadium parking lot at Roadman Park. The event is planned for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. July 12.

The collection will give community members a safe, environmentally friendly way to dispose of household chemical waste, such as cleaners, automotive fluids, paints, pesticides, pool chemicals and more.
