 Residential Recycling

Act 101 requires "mandated" municipalities to have an ordinance that requires, among other things, "persons to separate high grade office paper, aluminum, corrugated paper and leaf waste and other materials deemed appropriate by the municipality generated at commercial, municipal or institutional establishments and from community activities and to store the material until collection."

Each municipality in Northampton County directs their own recycling program within the parameters of PA Act 101.  Please contact your municipality directly with questions about your curbside trash and recycling.
