The Lancaster Recycling Center has made arrangements with a new local recycler to take a wide range of electronic items. These include pretty much anything that plugs in: microwave ovens, computers, computer printers, and stereo equipment, TVs as well as the electrical and electronic items taken in the past. There is a modest charge to leave some of these items, to defray the costs of the Recycling Center. Please ask a volunteer at the Recycling Center for more information.
Through the combined efforts of the Lancaster DPW and the Lancaster Recycling Center there is a considerable amount of compost which is available to local residents at no charge. To provide as convenient access to the compost as possible, it has been moved to the corner of the DPW lot right at the roadside. Local residents are encouraged to take as much compost as they want.
Your efforts are making a difference! Last year, Lancaster collected more than 423 tons of recyclables. That included enough paper to save 6,248 trees and enough plastic soda bottles to make 8,640 fleece jackets. Enough energy was saved by recycling aluminum cans to run 63 refrigerators for a year. You have helped make our recycling program a success. With your continued commitment, we will achieve our recycling goals. Keep up the good work!
