Single Stream Recycling
Single-stream recycling is a process by which materials are collected in one container. No sorting is required by the resident. Recyclable containers should be rinsed clean, and cardboard should be flattened. Lids should be removed from plastic bottles. Single stream recyclables should be placed loose in your recycling Toter. Excess recyclables that don’t fit in your Toter must be placed in paper bags. Carboard boxes must be broken down to no more than 3’x3’ and bound with twine.
To guarantee collection, place your Township-provided cart curbside the night before your scheduled collection day.
The Lanchester Landfill no longer accepts books for recycling. View book recycling options here.
If you throw something away, it is no longer useful. It ends up in the landfill, is incinerated, or contaminates the environment in some other way. If you recycle something, it can be recovered and become material for a new product. Additionally, it does not go into the waste stream, which lessens the load on waste disposal costs.
