Single Stream RecyclingSingle stream recycling is placing all paper, glass bottles & jars,
aluminum, steel-bi-metallic and plastic items, in one container. When recycling curbside in Northampton County, with the exception of the City of Bethlehem (dual stream), recyclable materials do not need to be sorted. This is also known as single stream recycling. It's easy and saves time for you and eliminates more recycling trucks on the road. Please contact your municipality or hauler (private subscription) to see what items are accepted in your curbside collection.
AppliancesBoth PPL Electric and Met-Ed want you to properly dispose of your old (working) refrigerator and/or freezer and they will pick it up and pay you to do it! If you’re an existing customer, both companies will pick up your appliance(s) for you, and mail you a check or credit your account. Air conditioners and dehumidifiers can be recycled along with qualifying refrigerators and freezers at the same time.
