Recycling Office of Luzerne County Mission Statement
To ensure the delivery of an integrated, cost-effective, and environmentally sound solid waste management system, and to promote through assistance and education, sustainable community programs and policies throughout Luzerne County.
Due to the current status of Covid-19, The Luzerne County Recycling Office has decided to postpone the Fall Tire Collections for the 2020 calendar year. The Recycling Office is hoping to hold collections during the 2021 calendar year. Two (2) in the Spring and two (2) in the Fall, if allowable. Dates and times for collections will be forwarded once they have been finalized. We apologize for any inconvenience to the residence and municipal office however, please know the safety of everyone involved is our main concern.
The Recycling Office is still fulfilling the mission of the department and will be available daily for answers to questions, please call 1-800-821-7654.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is asking residents to, if possible, store only clean commingled items until the health crisis subsides and services can be resorted to normal. If this is not possible, residents can put the items in with their normal, weekly household trash collection. Traditional/normal recycling is expected to resume once this health issue is deemed to be over.
Residents that live in a town that recycles are urged to please contact your local officials at the town hall with additional questions on your recycling program.
Thank you to all the municipalities who took advantage of these programs and held these events for their residents! Please check back as some dates may be postponed, due to the recent Covid-19 situation. Updates will be made as requested changes come in.
