Recycling Costs Increase

For years the Township was able to operate the Recycling Center at no cost to taxpayers. That will change in 2014 adding $10,000 unanticipated expense to the Township budget which may force the Township to remove the containers. The Supervisors will be evaluating the service during 2015 budget review.

Help reduce the expense by taking advantage of recycling services built into the cost of your trash collection and offered by your trash hauler, which is required by law.

For example, Republic Services, offers a Recycle Bank Program which pays reward points to customers based on the volume they recycle. You are able to put ALL recycling into one container. The more you recycle, the more points you earn for discounts and specials at your favorite local shops and restaurants.

  • catalogs

You can also recycle your unwanted paper at the green and yellow “Paper Retriever” dumpsters at churches, schools, and non-profit organizations throughout the community.

Recycling at any of these dumpsters benefits East Rockhill tax payers by increasing our recycling quantities reported to DEP and contributing to the calculation of our recycling performance-based grant awards.
