Upper Tulpehocken Township Recycling
Upper Tulpehocken Township residents and non-residents that would like to participate in the UTT Recycling Program are asked to complete the Recycling Application to obtain a key fob for entrance into the recycling center. This application may be found by hovering your cursor over 'Recycling' in the yellow box menu to the left.
Renewal and new payments may be made online via the link at the bottom of this page.
PLEASE NOTE: If the ID number on the back of your key fob is illegible, or you are applying for a new key fob, please enter zeroes as a place holder in that field when paying online.
Please remember: Place items in designated bins. It is never appropriate to leave recyclables or any type of trash outside the drop-off containers. This ongoing practice creates added Township expenses. If the bin is full, please take your recyclables back home with you and contact the municipal office. Acceptable materials for recycling at Upper Tulpehocken Township include:
Glass- clear, green, and, brown bottles and jars
Plastics- #1 - #7, bottles and containers only
Aluminum Cans- food and beverage cans only
Bi-Metal Cans- any food containers
Mixed paper- newspaper, magazines, phone books, junk mail, office paper, lightweight cardboard, catalogsAluminum cans are also being accepted in the fenced in area next to the township garage, to benefit the Strausstown Fire Company. Cans can be dropped off anytime during the month. This is an ongoing fundraiser for the fire company.
Please take advantage of the many opportunities to recycle!
