Why Recycle ?
It has economic and environmental benefits. All this “stuff” no longer goes into landfills. As much as possible, it’s re-manufactured into new products-glass reshaped, newspaper remade as paper; plastic drinking containers become lumber. Recycling saves resources and raw materials.
It costs you nothing. It sells the “stuff”. Not at a profit, but it saves the borough dumping fees at the County landfill, and makes our recycling self-financing.
It’s the law. Violators are subject to penalties, including fine, jail and/or community service. It’s a violation if you put recyclables in with regular garbage. At the County Reclamation Center all garbage is dumped on the floor and if they find recycling the Borough gets fined.
