Centre County Authority Gives Out Recycling Rebates

Due to good recycling market conditions in 2007, especially corrugated cardboard and aluminum, the Centre County Solid Waste Authority is giving recycling rebates back to its haulers and municipalities for their efforts in reducing the amount of waste sent to local landfills.

This year, the authority is giving back $144,195 in recycling rebates as a thank-you to its customers who have helped to make Centre County a leader in the recycling industry. This amounts to $15 per ton for every ton of recyclables delivered to the authority's facility during 2007.

Some of the authority's customers have elected to donate the money back to the authority to help offset costs of free special collections, such as household hazardous waste and the authority's permanent E-Cycle collection site.

“The Centre County Solid Waste Authority would like to thank all of its customers for their business and hope the markets as well as recycling volumes continue to grow in 2008,” Centre County Solid Waste Authority Education Coordinator Amy Schirf said.
