If you are a resident of Mt. Pleasant Township, your monthly recycling date will be the first Thursday of a full week of each month. If you do not have a container from your recycling company, use any container you have but please mark it as recyclable.

We are doing a great job recycling in the borough, so let's keep it up. Items that can be recycled include glass, plastics, cans, newspapers, phone books, magazines, junk mail, cardboard that has been folded, bundled and tied, not taped. Remember, no pizza boxes. If you have more items than you have recycling containers, feel free to use any container, simply mark on the container that it is a recycle container. The next recycling days will be Monday and Tuesday.
