BOROUGH RECYCLING PROGRAM
Recycling in West Chester follows the same schedule as trash collection. The Borough’s recycling program is now a single stream curbside collection program, meaning that the following recyclables may be mixed together in your blue 20 gallon recycling container: Clear, green, and brown glass, Plastic containers #1-7, Aluminum beverage cans, clean aluminum foil and take out containers, empty aerosol cans, steel food and beverage cans, mixed paper (i.e. newspaper, junk mail, office paper, etc.), and cardboard. Cardboard boxes must still be broken down and flattened to be placed in your bin. If you do not have a bin, you may pick one up at the Public Works Department at 205 Lacey Street for a charge of $6.00 per container. There is no limit to the amount of recycling you may put out each week, so we encourage you to purchase extra bins if needed. Remember to print your address on the container in the space provided.
