Refuse Transfer Station & Recycling Center


Changes in the “Single Stream” Recycling

Starting on November 2nd, 2020 the Recycling Center at the Washington Township Transfer Station will only be accepting “Single Stream” recyclable materials on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.  “Single Steam” recyclables will be dropped off up the hill behind the Recycling Buildings and placed in the yellow containers as they are now.

There will be further changes taking place starting on January 2nd, 2021 and will consist of the following:

  1. NO Single Stream Recyclables will be accepted from anyone except a resident of Washington Township.  Proof of residency consists of a valid PA driver’s license or PA Photo ID Card and valid vehicle registration. The vehicle must be registered to an address in Washington Township.
  2. Vehicles used for dropping off recyclables must display a Washington Township issued sticker. This can be purchased annually from the Township for $20 each and must be permanently attached to the vehicle.

The “Single Stream” Recycling is only available for residential recycling.  Cardboard, scrap metal and leaves will still be accepted from everyone on any given day of operation. NO CHANGES will be made to recycle items which we charge a fee for; such as brush, batteries, grass and tires.  These alterations are being made to try to control the cost of the ever changing Recycling Operation and will continue to allow Washington Township to offer this program to our residents.
