Recycling Information:

Chalfant Borough has “single stream” recycling bins in the Public Safety Building Driveway located off Rossmore which can accommodate glass, aluminum, plastic bottles, paperboard, and non-corrugated cardboard.

Newspapers, junk mail, catalogs, magazines, and office paper can be placed in the large green Abitibi bin.

Recyclable cans, plastic and glass should be clean and paperboard and non-corrugated cardboard should be compacted to make more room in bins.

Recyclables can be placed into the collection bins loose or in paper bags.

Plastic bags, general trash or food waste are not accepted in the Abitibi paper recycler or the recycling bins.
