GLASS RECYCLING IS HERE!

glass recycling

Glass recycling is here at Franklin Park Borough!  Together with the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) a glass recycling bin has been placed in the parking area in the rear of the municipal building.   The self-serve drop off is available daily from 8:00 am – sundown.  Please follow all posted rules and drop off hours.   

  • This bin is for approved glass material only
  • You must clean up glass that breaks outside the bin
  • When using the bin be cautious of other cars and pedestrians that utilize this area 

The Municipal Building has residential neighbors so please be courteous and refrain from utilizing the bin during hours that would disturb our neighbors. 

This is a 6-month pilot program.  If all goes well and no issues arise, we hope to make this a permanent drop-off site for the residents of Franklin Park.  Many residents showed an overwhelming concern that there was no outlet for the proper disposal of glass material.  Franklin Park is happy to be pro-active in providing recycling options that are not available curb side to our residents and surrounding communities. 

If you have any questions regarding the new drop-off site for glass please contact Donna Platt at 412-364-4115, Ext. 302 or by email at dplatt@franklinparkborough.us.
