PPG HOUSEHOLD WASTES CLEANUP SUCCESS

 ALLISON PARK, Pa., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 500 Hampton, Pa., and Springdale, Pa., households took advantage of household hazardous waste collections sponsored Saturday in the two municipalities by PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG).
 "Late Sunday, personnel from contractor Chemical Waste Management finished identifying and packing the wastes," said Grover J. Demeter, manager of facility services and construction at PPG's Coatings and Resins Group research center in Allison Park.
 Based on typical per-household costs for similar programs, Demeter said, PPG is likely to spend about $80,000 to dispose of materials brought to the Township of Hampton municipal building and a parking lot near PPG's Springdale plant.
 About 365 residents disposed of wastes at the Hampton collection and about 150 in Springdale. Demeter said that motor oil, antifreeze, car batteries, paints and lawn care products comprised the largest share of wastes.
 Municipal and PPG volunteers directed traffic, unloaded wastes and provided information to residents dropping off materials. Chemical Waste Management personnel were responsible for identifying and packing wastes for shipment and eventual recycling or safe disposal.
 "We are gratified by residents' participation in these programs. As a company, we are pleased to assure that these materials will be properly disposed of," Demeter said.
