Butler Township Single Stream Recycling
Thanks to a new machine in Butler Township, Luzerne County, the area has switched to “single-stream” recycling, so residents will no longer have to separate mixed paper and co-mingled containers. Butler Township manager, Maryanne Petrilla tells News 13 that a new machine will also allow the hauling fees to significantly be reduced because it compacts the recyclables into a small bundle. The response on recycling has been so big from residents in Butler Township, Sugarloaf Township and Conyngham Borough and Butler Township is in the process of applying for a grant to get more recycling bins. The Recycling Center is open to any resident from Butler Township and surrounding municipalities are welcome to use the center.
