Recycling facilities consist of two large roll-off box containers: one container is for cardboard only; the other container is for glass and plastic bottles. Please DO NOT use these receptacles to dispose of rubbish and general trash - it will result in the township being charged higher recycling fees from our collector. Also, the recycling containers are to be used for residential-generated materials for the benefit of our residents.
Materials generated from a local commercial or industrial use quickly fill up the capacity of the receptacles, and are prohibited.
 It is never appropriate to leave recyclables outside the drop-off container.

If the containers are full, please take recyclables home and contact the Authority at (610) 478-6362 for alternative locations.
