It has been almost two years since we began collecting miscellaneous plastics for recycling. In those two years, we’ve had many challenges with the program and have learned a lot in the process.
I’d like to take some time to list the official Do’s and Don’ts of our miscellaneous plastics recycling program.
Narrow-neck plastic bottles, jugs and jars should be placed in a curbside recycling bin or in a drop-off container labeled for “Plastic Bottles, Jugs and Jars.”
All of our miscellaneous plastics containers are clearly marked with a list of dos and don’ts to help if you have any questions.
We have four locations to drop off miscellaneous plastics. These locations are:
• CCRRA, 253 Transfer Road, off Route 26, between the Nittany Mall and Rockview Prison.
• Between the Patton Township Fire Station, 2598 Green Tech Drive, and ClearWater Conservancy, 2555 N. Atherton St.
• Burger King, 901 East Bishop St., Bellefonte. The bin is in the parking lot.
• Hamilton Square Shopping Center, 244 West Hamilton Ave., State College.
Remember, if your miscellaneous plastic item does not fit into the opening on any of our containers, we cannot accept it in our recycling program. Please do not leave anything on the ground around any of our recycling drop-off containers, as they attract pests as well as lead to an unsightly atmosphere.
Thanks for your help in keeping the quality of recyclables up and the litter around our containers down.
