Single Stream Recycling

Did you know that Penn Waste accepts all of your recycling in one bin? If it is recyclable, you are able to put all of these items in one collection container. These items include:

  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Plastic
  • Paper, Paperboard and Cardboard

For more information on the different types of items that are recyclable, please look through our Recycle Guidelines. Included is a full list of the types of recyclable material, as well as tips to maximize your recycle bin space and how to minimize the amount of contaminated recyclables in your recycle bin.

We recently released a segment on WGAL and Fox 43 that highlights how our single stream recycling works. Please check out the video below.

  1. I sent an email about having a tour of the recycling plant. Have not heard back from anyone.

    I would like to know what happens to “SHREDDED” material?

    Thank you.

    • Debra, sorry about the emails. Unfortunately at this time, we are not offering tours of our facility.

      In regard to your question about shredded material, we accept shredded paper as long as it is placed in a clear plastic bag. From there, we recycle it with the other paper products.

      We hope that this was helpful!
