No Plastic Bags in Your Recycle Bin!

Penn Waste is urging customers to not place plastic bags in your recycle bin! When you place plastic bags in your recycle bin, they can get wrapped around our sorting equipment. Then, Penn Waste team members at our recycle center have to climb into the machinery and cut off the plastic bags. Plastic bags should never be placed in your curbside recycling bin for this reason.
