Effective on January 7, 2015 Atglen Borough began curbside collection of single stream recycling . All recycled material can be mixed together in the recycling container provided by A.J. Blosenski Inc. The 35 gallon container has an attached lid and is on wheels for easier handling.  Recycling will be picked up on Wednesday the same day as your trash.  There will be two collection trucks - one for trash and one for recycling; they will come by at different times.  Place both your trash and your recycling container out for curbside service. 

Do not put a liner in the can - it is recommended to rinse food containers prior to recycling.
