Centre County Announces Political Sign Recycling Program

Now that the election will be over, there are thousands of yard signs that will be disposed of.  To cut down on the campaign yard sign waste, the Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority is offering a Political Sign Recycling Drop-Off Program. 
          Just bring your campaign yard sign(s) to the Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority by Friday, November 23rd, for it to be recycled.      
          Please bring your sign(s) between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday to Building A, at the Authority.  Come through the main doors and look for the drop-off box.  
          Please note the Authority is closed on Thursday, November 22nd.
          “While political signs certainly serve a purpose in assisting with the democratic process, after an election they are really nothing more than “litter on a stick”, says Joanne Shafer, Deputy Executive Director for the Authority.  “This is a way to make a contribution to the environment, no matter what your political affiliation.”
          Your campaign yard sign will be recycled through a special arrangement with Concord Plastics located in Altoona.
          For additional information on this recycling program, please call our office at 814-238-7005, or contact us by email to: wasted5@uplink.net.
