According to the Lebanon City Ordinance Section 32C Article 930, recycling is mandatory within the City limits. In 1988 the Pennsylvania Legislature passed Act 101, which requires municipalities with populations of 10,000 or higher to provide curbside and residential recycling.
Failure to comply with the City Ordinance could result in a fine.
If you are in need of a recycling container please call the City Recycling Coordinator at 273-6711 ext. 2430 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (Please be advised recycling containers are not to be used as trash cans.)
Who Should participate?
Everyone who lives or does business within the City of Lebanon. It's up to all of us to keep our community clean.
Why be Concerned?
Due to the rapid rise of waste materials there is an imminent need to recycle. In a lifetime the average American will throw away 600 times his or her adult weight in garbage. This means that each adult will leave a legacy of approximately 90,000 lbs. of garbage. This figure can be drastically reduced through recycling and by making informed choices when purchasing recycled products with reduced packaging. By recycling we help the future of our environment and save valuable landfill space.
The City of Lebanon Recycling Booklet, a complete listing of recycling instructions (services can be downloaded) is available in our "Documents" section of the site. This publication is also available at the Municipal Building, Public Works Department.
If you have any questions about the City’s recycling program, please contact the Recycling Coordinator, Department of Public Works, at (717) 228-4490.
