The Washington Township (Pa.) Recycling Center recycled 61 tons in September, bringing the year-to-date total to 1,962 tons, according to a recycling report presented at Wednesday’s Washington Township Supervisors workshop.
Township Manager Mike Christopher said the amount recycled varies from month to month because of shipments away from the facility. He said a large shipment in August drew down September’s numbers.
The facility ships plastics to eastern Pennsylvania, glass to southwestern Pennsylvania, aluminum locally, and steel cans to various sites, Christopher said.
