ALTOONA - The Intermunicipal Relations Committee hosted their annual household hazardous waste collection. The group annually collects aerosols, antifreeze, batteries and other household things that can't be just tossed in the trash. The IRC says it's important to be aware of what can be thrown into the trash and what can be harmful to the environment.

"A great development on this front to is that much more of this stuff is being recycled and recovered rather than ebing desposed and just moving the problems from one place to another and now addressing the problem on a more permanent....less temporary basis," John Frederick, Exec. Dir. of the IRC says.
