Thank you for your time and effort you put into recycling. The market for comingled recyclables has collapsed and processing and marketing problems for commingled were compounded by the Covid 19 pandemic. Lackawanna County Recycling Center will charge a rate of $40.00 a ton commencing on July 20, 2020 for comingled recycables . In this light we have to change our recycling schedule as follows:
MONDAYS – GARBAGE AND CARDBOARD ONLY RECYCLING
TUESDAY – GARBAGE AND CARDBOARD ONLY RECYCLING
WEDNESDAY – GARBAGE AND CARDBOARD ONLY RECYCLING
THURSDAY – COMMINGLED RECYCLING FOR THE ENTIRE BOROUGH AND LOWER MOOSIC GRASS AND BRUSH PICK UP
FRIDAY – GREENWOOD AND GLENMAURA GRASS AND BRUSH PICK UP AND FIRST FRIDAY OF EACH MONTH PAPER PICK UP.
