County landfill’s recycling drop-off site relocated

Lycoming County Resource Management Services has relocated its public recycling drop off site at the landfill, 447 Alexander Drive in Montgomery, to be more accessible, according to a news release.

Customers will no longer have to check in with the weighmaster at the scalehouse for recycling.

The site has moved from the self-dump area to a location in the administrative parking lot right before the landfill scalehouse. Yellow barriers surround this site and customers can follow the signs stating “Recycling Drop Off Site.”

According to the news release, the following materials are accepted at this site:

• fiber and papers, which include magazines, newspapers, chipboard, office paper junk mail, and cardboard that has been broken down are all acceptable into one container.

• plastic bottles and metal cans, which include plastic bottles and jars — No. 1 and 2 only — and tin, steel and aluminum cans are all acceptable into one container.

• glass bottles and jars are still acceptable and are still separated by color (clear/brown/green).

Plastic bags are not acceptable and customers are asked to empty any bagged material and take the bags home.

Tires, computers, TVs, appliances, scrap metal, wood waste and household waste must be weighed in at the scalehouse, the news release said.
