Recycling in Philadelphia in 2019


On Monday, September 16th at 7:00 p.m., please join Cedar Park Neighbors and a representative from the city's Office of Recycling for a presentation on the state of recycling in Philadelphia. We will meet in the chapel at the Calvary Community Center located at 48th and Baltimore Avenue.

What should you put in the blue bin? How do you get a blue bin? Will there be a replacement to the Recycling Rewards program ended in June? Recycling made the city money as recently as 2012, but market volatility means this is no longer the case. What does the city's new "best-value contract" for processing at a Materials Recovery Facility mean and how can neighbors help?
