Plastic Bags Recycling

The Rostraver Township Lions Club is collecting plastics.  Drop off locations are St. Anne’s Church, Rostraver Township Municipal Building, and the Rostraver Public Library.  Your plastic bags and wraps then become Earth-friendly composite benches.  Recycle your Clean, Dry, Empty Plastics Bags, and Film Packaging.  It takes about 500 pounds (about 40,500 plastic bags) of plastic refuse to make one bench. 

 Plastics to collect must be clean, dry and free of food: 

LDPE/HDPE Films          Pellet Bags                  Produce Bags              Bread Bags
 
Newspaper Sleeves        Grocery Bags              Product Wrap               Cereal Liners

Branches and shrubs should be bundled in lengths no longer than 36 inches.

The following recyclables should be placed inside a RECYCLING container marked RECYCLING: Glass – brown, green, and clear glass containers, aluminum cans, steel cans, bimetallic cans, and plastic containers
(recycling logos 1 and 2).

Paper bins are located at two locations:

 ALL ELECTRONIC DEVICES TO BE RECYCLED

The Covered Devices Recycling Act (DCRA) of 2010, goes into effect on January 24, 2013. All covered devices [i.e. TV's, computers, monitors, laptops, and computer peripherals (devices directly attached to a computer like keyboards, printers, mice, etc.)] will be banned from landfill disposal.
The municipal waste hauler will no longer be permited by law from picking them up with residential trash left at the curb.
Westmoreland Cleanways urges that ALL electronic devices, such as VCR/DVD players, stereos, speakers, cell phones, basically anything with a cord, be recycled rather than landfill-disposed. Attached is a list of drop-off locations that will accept the devices covered under the law, and all other electronic devices, as well.

Westmoreland Cleanways will also continue to collect electronics at our spring and fall community collections.
