Single Stream Recycling—The Borough adopted an expanded list of recyclables that will no longer need to be separated. The following list includes many types of items that were not previously recycled. In addition, you will no longer need to use Borough issued recyclng containers. You can simply use a regular garbage can and place all recyclable items into the same can. Use a marker or other labeling method to identify the container as holding recyclables. All of the recyclables are commingled, so that you do not need to separate the items.
Lehigh County no longer offers Household Hazardous Waste collection events. You can, however, contact them at (610)782-3000 for information on alternative safe disposal methods. They will also provide you with contact information for commercial entities who specialize in the safe disposal of these items for a fee.
