Voluntary Curbside Program

 

 

There are currently eleven municipalities participating in the voluntary curbside recycling program:  Alexandria, Mapleton, Mill Creek, Mt. Union, Orbisonia, Petersburg, Rockhill, Saltillo and Three Springs Boroughs, and Shirley and Walker Townships. 

 

Local garbage haulers have agreed to pick up the co-mingled recyclables.  The distinctive yellow containers are used in this collective program.  There is no need to separate the items in the recycling container.  See the list of acceptable materials below.

 

Please contact the Huntingdon County Recycling Coordinator at 814-643-3091 to receive a yellow container.
