Another change at the Swarthmore Recycling Center is that they no longer accept glass, plastic, or steel cans; those bins have been removed from the site. However, these items can still be recycled in the curbside pickup. According to the Borough web site, residents are still encouraged to take cardboard, newspaper, office paper, and aluminum to the Recycling Center instead of including it in their curbside collection bins. The Borough sells these valuable source-separated products on the local recycling market. Also note that shredded paper is accepted at the recycling center but not curbside.
As a reminder, hours of operation of the Borough Recycling Center are:
7:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. Weekdays
9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Weekends
Please be considerate of nearby neighbors and observe the posted hours.
