Recycling

Recycling efforts in West Chester support the environment by reducing the impact on our landfills and reducing the demand on limited resources.

Recycling bin locations:

  • Beckett Park, 8650 Beckett Road. Bins are located past the Muhlhauser Barn in Beckett Park (follow signs). The recycling bins are not accessible from the Union Centre Boulevard entrance to the Park.
  • Keehner Park Tennis Court area, 7211 Barret Road
  • The West Chester Activity Center, 7900 Cox Road.

Items accepted for recycling at these locations include: paper, plastics, glass, and cardboard.

 

Recycling etiquette

Please follow the following guidelines when using the recycling bins:
  • Only deposit approved recyclable materials in the bins. Leaving other materials constitutes illegal dumping. Furniture, appliances and other materials are gratefully accepted by Goodwill, Salvation Army and similar organizations.
  • Please make sure the bin lids are closed to ensure trash does not blow out of the bins
  • If bins are full, please do not leave items outside the bins
