Mt. Lebanon makes it easy to recycle with its single stream recycling program. Put everything that can be recycled in a bin, and drag it to your curb for pickup. What could be easier?
Well, perhaps understanding better what can be recycled curbside might help. And undertanding where to recycle other products that can not be picked up would be nice.
Which is why we are putting together this recycling guide!
The municipal website is a great resource for recycling information.
- Curbside recycling pickup information
- Appliance and Electronic Equipment Recycling (look for it on the left hand menu)
- Household hazardous wate (motor oil, batteries, coolants, acids, flammables, paint, pesticides, tires, syringes, small arms munitions)
- Read about the recycling competition.
The Customer Service desk at the Municipal Building has print outs of the single stream recycling guide and stickers to mark your barrels. Stop by to pick them up next time you are uptown.
The Mt Lebanon Magazine Oct 2010 issue has an attractive 1 page guide to single stream recycling on page 42. Check it out here.
