Recycling

The Borough of Danville has required mandatory recycling by all residents and businesses since the establishment of its program in 1994. Occupants are responsible for the separation of recyclable materials from solid waste as well as for their preparation and placement for curbside pickup. Materials may also be delivered to a designated dropoff site. Recycling bins can be obtained by calling the Municipal Building at 570-275-3091, Ext. 2.

Complete regulations and details regarding this requirement can be found in Chapter 207, Article I (Recycling) of the Borough’s Code of Ordinances.
