Residential Recycling Information

Business, Commercial and Institutional Recycling Information

Businesses and Schools keep familiar with the State of Pennsylvania PA Act 101 and the Newtown Township General Code Chapter 141, Article IV which discusses recycling in our Township, specifically how all commercial and institutional entities are required to separate from the waste stream all paper, cardboard, aluminum and leaf waste.  Failure to abide by these requirements is subject to a fine of up to $1,000.00.  Other materials such as plastics and glass are strongly encouraged to be recycled as well, and the State of Pennsylvania has additional requirements regarding electronics, hazardous waste, etc. Commercial and institutional entities report annually to the Township the verification of their recycling programs and the results of those efforts.  These businesses and schools set a good example for our community of Newtown and are to be commended for their recycling efforts.

Pennsylvania DEP - Electronics Recycling Information 

Newtown Township thanks everyone who participated in 2018’s electronic recycling event on May 19, 2018. The event, held in partnership with Marple and Haverford Townships, took place at Delaware County Community College. Over 100,000 pounds of electronic waste was collected to be properly recycled. 

Newtown Township encourages residents to investigate the stores who sell electronics that also take electronic items to be recycled throughout the year. We are aware that TV’s are currently not accepted by these stores due to the extreme cost of recycling their components. We are actively looking for a resource for our residents to recycle TV’s and will post that information here when an option other than our annual electronics recycling event is found.  

There are other electronic recycling events at nearby locations held throughout the year - when we learn of these we will post that information.
