South Middleton Township Recycling Program
Since April 1, 1993, all residents and businesses of South Middleton Township have been required to separate certain materials to be recycled; for more information view the Recycling Guidelines (PDF).
There are a wide variety of materials encountered every day that can be recycled. All items which contain the recycling triangle symbol with the numbers 1-7 in it are recyclable. Efforts made to recycle as much of these items as possible will not only keep our community clean, but will also facilitate opportunities for grant funding from the State to continue to operate the Municipal Compost Facility.
To facilitate learning about what is recyclable, we've provided a useful recyclables document (PDF) with images of the recycling triangle symbol and examples of categories of recyclables.
