Upper Moreland Township will soon begin a fully Automated Recycling Collection Program. A 95 gallon recycling containers will be provided by the Township and will be distributed to each property currently receiving recycling collection by the Township’s Public Works Department. These new containers will be the only acceptable container to place your recycling materials in for collection and are not to be used for yard waste collection or the disposal of any other items. All recycling materials must be placed in the new container: boxes or other containers may no longer be used to dispose of recycling materials. Boxes must be broken down and placed in the new containers. The containers should be placed at the curb and away from parked cars with the arrows facing the street.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL RECYCLING MATERIALS (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF YARD WASTE) MUST BE PLACED IN THE RECYCLING CONTAINER PROVIDED BY THE TOWNSHIP. YOU CAN NO LONGER SET OUT CARDBOARD BOXES OR OTHER CONTAINERS SEPARATELY.
The new recycling containers have been purchased with a $350,000 grant obtained by the Township from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources. Automated recycling will allow for both a more efficient collection process and one that is safer for the Township’s workforce.
