 Environmental Services

​Environmental Services, a Division of the Department of Public Works, is a County office that deals with recycling, special collections and recycling education. 
We offer assistance to municipal offices located within Northampton County and coordinate recycling and solid waste efforts within the County in the following ways:

  • Assist municipalities and recycling agencies with the implementation of recycling programs, education, obtaining grant funding, and environmental data management.
  • Prepare the Northampton County Municipal Solid Waste Management Plan.
  • Organize various waste collection events for the County residents that improve and increase recycling and waste diversion. 

Northampton County offers, sponsors, and/or supports the programs and services listed to the left that help address various solid waste management and recycling needs within the County. Click on each tab to find out information about that program and/or service.
