An Important Message About Medical Waste

In 2016, Penn Waste received over 500 pounds of medical waste at our recycling facility! This is a public safety hazard for our team members who manually sort through the recycling and are at risk of getting stuck by a needle.

Medical waste needs to be properly disposed of in the TRASH, not the RECYCLING.
