Warminster Begins Streamlined Recycling Program
Under the new program, residents can now combine all of their recyclable material into one container.
Recycling day may have become a little bit easier for Warminster residents.
When the township supervisors re-upped their waste management contract with J.P. Mascaro & Sons, they entered into a single-stream recycling program.
Now, Warminster residents can place all recyclable materials into one container, instead of separating them into separate crates. If you are using a larger trash can for the recyclables, place a clearly visible, township-provided sticker on the container.
Under the new agreement, a percentage of the tonnage recycled goes back to the township waste management expense.
The following items can be included in the streamlined recycling container:
- Aluminum cans
- Aluminum foil (please rinse food products)
- Metal lids
- Glass bottles and jars (please rinse food products)
- Plastic soda bottles
- Water bottles
- Plastic milk and juice cartons (not the paper cartons)
- Shampoo bottles
- Detergent containers
- Ketchup, mustard, salad dressing bottles (please rinse food products)
- Yogurt and Margarince containers (please rinse food products)
- Cardboard boxes (break down boxes)
- Cereal boxes
- Tissue boxes
- Phone books
- Wrapping paper
DO NOT recycle the following:
- Coffee cups
- Drinking glasses
- Glass ovenware
- Window glass
- Plastic bags
- Bubble wrap
- Tissue or paper towels
- Books or toys
Nothing else has changed in regards to Warminster's waste collection program. All trash days, recycling days and yard waste service days remain the same. Residents are permitted a maximum of six containers of trash per collection day and one bulk item (i.e. sofa, TV, water heater) on the second collection day of the week. Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioning and dehumidifiers contain freon and need special handling by calling (800) 432-1616.
