Our recycling program is a "single stream" process.
What does this mean for you? It means it is even easier for you to be kind to the environment and recycle - NO SORTING! That's right, your plastics, glass, cans, magazines and newspapers can all go into the same containers to be sorted through an automated system at its final stop.
We are also accepting additional plastics - #3's through #7's. (Look on the bottom of the container)
We would ask that you still place the corrugated cardboard in the same trailer always used, and that you support the North Centre Township Nature Park by placing your aluminum cans in the blue bins marked for such.
If you have any question on this process, pleases call the office at 570-759-2733.
North Centre Township is proud to offer a recycling program for it's residents. This non-profit endeavor of Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling cuts down on the amount of raw material needed to create new products, lessening the overall impact on natural resources. And by sending less material to landfills, we can put a dent in the amount of trash Americans produce each day: enough to fill the New Orleans Superdome top to bottom, twice a day!
We accept the following items in our recycling program.
We also accept #3 - #7 plastics!
Recycling fun facts: It takes 95 percent less energy to make an aluminum can out of recycled aluminum than out of raw virgin materials. Making glass from recycled material allows manufacturers to run their furnaces at lower temperatures, also saving energy.
The Historical Society meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Township Building at 7:00PM. The current officer's of the society are: Charles Knorr, President Carl Podinesek, Vice President Gerald John, Public Relations Pam John, Treasurer Karen Miccio& Debbie Podlinsek Secretary

Natural Park & Community Day
During winter, as the summer animals take to their sleep and the winter ones scamper around, magnificent changes will occur at our park. Be sure to visit the many beautiful areas in our Nature Park. Stop by to enjoy a winter picnic or take time for some quiet reflection by taking in the natural beauty the park has to offer. The bathroom facilities will not be in place from the end of October through the beginning of April, so plan accordingly! Please carry out any garbage you may have and be sure to keep pets leashed at all times.
Next meeting for the Park Committee meeting Decemmber 19, 2016 at 7pm.
