Recycling

Carroll Township Recycling
 
Carroll Township uses a Buy the Bag program for recycling.  Simply purchase a recycling bag and place all recyclable materials in the same bag and put the bag in the recycling dumpster located at the Municipal Building 50 Rambo Hill Road Shermans Dale.  The dumpster is available 24/7.  For curbside route pickup, refer to the hauler's website www.cocolamuscreekdisposal.com.  

 

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE BAGS AT INTERSECTIONS, BRING THEM TO THE DUMPSTER AT 50 RAMBO HILL ROAD--We hope to announce another location for a dumpster soon, we are working with CCD on this currently.

Bags currently cost $2.75 each and can be purchased at the Municipal Building (during office hours), and at local retailers such as:  Ugo, the Market Place, and Karn's Food.  For additional locations to purchase bags, refer to the hauler's website www.cocolamuscreekdisposal.com.


***As of March 1, 2022 the cost of the bags will increase to $4.00.***


The Board of Supervisors encourages all residents to join in the effort to make Carroll Township a "greener" community by supporting the recycling program.  If you are already recycling, the Board of Supervisors thanks you smiley for helping to conserve and preserve the natural resourses of our planet!!!
