Recycle Right Lancaster!
LCSWMA recently announced new guidelines for curbside recycling in Lancaster County. We're asking that residents place ONLY the Big 4 in their bins:

CORRUGATED CARDBOARD: 
This includes any size material consisting of a fluted corrugated sheet, like shipping boxes, packing boxes, CLEAN pizza boxes (no grease or food remnants), etc. Flatten all boxes and remove packaging including Styrofoam, peanuts, bubble wrap and plastic liners. Do NOT put paperboard (cereal boxes, shoe boxes), newsprint or junk mail in the bin.

PLASTIC BOTTLES AND JUGS WITH A NECK: 
Throw away the lids and rinse out any residue. All other plastic material is considered trash. Ignore the numbers, as they don't indicate if something is recyclable. Do NOT put plastic bags, toys, buckets, packaging, Styrofoam, hosing, furniture, or other plastic items in the bin.

METAL FOOD AND BEVERAGE CANS: 
This includes all food and beverage cans made from aluminum or steel. Throw away the lids and rinse out any residue. Do NOT put metal hangers, cooking pots and pans or other scrap metal like foil and pie plates in the bin.

GLASS BOTTLES AND JARS: 
This includes clear, green and brown glass bottles and jars. Throw away the lids and rinse out any residue. Do NOT put light bulbs, dishes, glassware, window or automotive glass, vases or any other glass material in the bin.

It's okay to throw everything else away. LCSWMA will transform discarded waste into renewable energy!

Show Us How You Recycle Right!
It will take ALL of us to keep recycling sustainable in our community. We want to see how you're recycling right at home or at work in Lancaster County!
