Recycling

Prompton Borough hosts a municipal recycling drop-off location at the basketball court next to the Prompton Fire Hall. The drop-off site is available the fourth Saturday of every month from 9 AM to noon.

The following materials are accepted:

  • clear glass
  • brown glass
  • green glass
  • metal/aluminum cans
  • #1/#2 plastic bottles (see NOTICE below)
  • newspapers (bundled and tied)
  • magazines (bundled and tied)

The following items are NOT accepted:

  • cardboard
  • batteries
  • light bulbs (to include CFLs)
  • plastics #3 or higher
  • trash
  • non-bottle #1/#2 plastics (see NOTICE below)

NOTICE FROM THE WAYNE COUNTY RECYCLING COORDINATOR:

We only accept #1 (PET) and #2 (HDPE) plastic bottles. A bottle is described as something with a neck or screw top. Examples are: water bottles, shampoo bottles, laundry detergent bottles, milk jugs, etc.

We DO NOT accept laundry baskets, flower pots, blueberry and strawberry containers, food trays, plastic toys, etc. Even if it has a #1 or #2 placed on the bottom, if it’s not a bottle with a neck it is not recyclable at the Wayne County Recycling Center.

The County uses a source-separated program rather than a single stream program for various reasons. Disposing of this trash costs the County extra money and it also reduces the volume of space in the roll-off container for the plastics that we do recycle.
