Borough still has recycling bins for residents

The Borough is still offering recycle bins for its residents. The newer bins are actually barrels and are heavier and taller than the previous ones, allowing more room for contents. Not only is it mandatory to recycle but the Borough receives state funds for recycling. PLEASE RECYCLE!

You may pick up your bin at the Borough Office front desk Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3 pm.

You must bring identification to show you are a homeowner living in the Borough. A driver's license with your address, a utility bill or trash bill are examples of such identification.

To help with the distribution of bins for residents unable to come to the Borough office during working hours, the Borough is making the following dates available to pick up your free recycling bin:

Saturday, March 12, 2016 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Borough Office 308 Locust St.

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 4:30 pm to 7:30pm at Borough Office 308 Locust St.

The sturdy Rehrig Pacific bins are 24-1/2" high, with a top outside diameter of 22-1/2".

Once all residents have received bins, anyone can purchase additional bins for a cost of $15.00.

Rental properties must go through your landlord to obtain bins.

Borough Offices: 308 Locust Street, Columbia PA 17512 | Phone: 717-684-2467


  1. Very nice and sturdy! Thank you.

  2. So if I show my driver's license with my current address or a utility bill, how do you know if I am the landlord or the tenant??? would have made more sense to have them delivered by the borough to each residence or have the trash companies deliver when doing regular pickups.

  3. I rent and i pay my trash bill, guess what? I am picking one up!

  4. Every resident that is in the borough should be entitled to a new recycling bin.
    Get over the drama!
