It’s finally happened...we are recycling yogurt containers - and much more! The Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority HAS ADDED MISCELLANEOUS PLASTIC CONTAINERS to our recycling program.

There are currently two locations to drop-off your MISCELLANEOUS PLASTIC CONTAINERS:

1. The Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority, located at 253 Transfer Road, in Bellefonte (between the Nittany Mall and Rockview Prison, off of Route 26.) The recycling container is located
outside of Gate 3, on Transfer Road.
2. Between the Patton Township Fire Station (2598 Green Tech Drive) and ClearWater Conservancy
(2555 N. Atherton St.). A list of acceptable plastics is available on our printable flyer. Print a copy and post it near your recycling bin for easy reference!

CCRRA collected over 48,000 pounds of materials during their Annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event.  A big thank you to 850+ residents who attended to properly dispose of their hazardous items.  They will hold another collection in the Spring of 2013.

Please call with any questions. Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority (814) 238-7005 or wasted5@uplink.net
