Whitemarsh Happenings

September, 2016



TRASH & RECYCLING: 

LABOR DAY TRASH & RECYCLING:
There will be NO TRASH & RECYCLING collection on Monday, September 5 in observance of Labor Day.  Residents whose trash & recycling collection falls on Monday (Sept. 5) will have trash & recycling on Wednesday (Sept. 7) of that week.

ALL YARD WASTE will be collected on Saturday, Sept. 10 - THERE WILL BE NO YARD WASTE COLLECTION ON WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 7.  


RECYCLING REMINDERS:
Residential recycling is single-stream which means that you may mix all recyclable materials into one container - there is no need to separate materials.  However, please remember not to mix non-recyclables into your recycling bin. Local governments and environmental service providers spend millions of dollars each year to remove contaminants. They may even be forced to discard entire batches that could have otherwise been recycled if they are found to be overly contaminated. If you're not careful, what you throw in the recycling bin may in up in landfills or incinerators instead!

MONTGOMERY COUNTY HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION:
Saturday, September 17: At Spring-Ford 9th Grade Center (400 South Lewis Road, Royersford, PA 19468).  Free residential collection event from 9am to 3pm (rain or shine). 

For more information, please visit 
MontgomeryCountyRecycles.org or call the recycling line at 610-278-3618
