Recycling Program

In 1991, the Borough began a comprehensive Curbside Recycling Program.  The goal of this program is to minimize the solid waste stream by recycling at least 25% of the refuse collected.  This saves landfill space which in turn lowers our disposal fees. 

The green recycling containers delivered to each residence are the property of the Borough of Shillington and must remain at the property if you move.  Write your address in black magic marker or white paint on the green recycling container.  This simple process will make it easier to locate your can if lost.  Additional 20-gallon containers are available for residents to purchase at their cost.
