Recycling reminder

Council reminds residents that all borough recyclables must follow the following:

All cans and jars must be emptied and cleaned.

No styrofoam containers or paper plates are to be recycled. Instead, these items should be put in with your trash.

Your recyclables will not be picked up if it contains these items.

Council reminds residents to break down cardboard and place it in bins rather than in a cardboard box or it will not be picked up. Placing your broken down cardboard in another cardboard box isn’t the proper way to recycle your cardboard.

Hughestown Council appreciates residents following the guidelines for recycling and reminds residents to place their recycling outside the night before it is scheduled to be picked up.
