Commercial establishments are encouraged to also recycle additional items, including clear and colored glass, steel/bi-metallic cans, newsprint, and plastic containers labeled 1 through 7.

All commercial, industrial, and institutional establishments are required, under State and Township regulations, to establish a collection system for recycled materials.  The materials that must be collected are high-grade office paper, corrugated paper and aluminum.  All haulers and recyclers operating in the Township are required to provide to the Cumberland County Recycling and Waste Authority a quarterly recycling report on the specific form provided by the County.
