Starting January 1, 2022 Single-Stream Recycling is picked up on Thursday for the majority of the Borough and on Friday for residents on 4th Avenue and south to Chestnut Hill Drive.
Single Stream Recycling means that you don't have to separate your recyclables. Instead place all of your recyclable materials, such as paper, cans, and bottles, in the same container.

Single stream recycling has been shown to increase household recycling by 25%. This saves time by not having to separate recyclables.
