Recycling

In Warwick Township, each person who owns or occupies a residential dwelling or multi-family dwelling is required to recycle the following materials: Clear & colored glass, aluminum cans, steel cans, plastic, newsprint, yard waste, tires & white goods.   Each person who owns or occupies a commercial, industrial, or institutional building is required torecycle high grade office paper and corrugated cardboard in addition to the previously listed materials.  Residents may either arrange for collection of these materials by a permitted hauler, or take them to a Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority facility.

Please note: please make sure your trash and recyclables are secured on windy days; plastics and trash blowing around pollutes our land and our streams.  If possible, wait until your next scheduled collection day to place recyclables at the curb on windy days.
