2018 Bucks County Recycling Guide

On behalf of the staff at the Bucks County Planning Commission, please find a PDF version of the newly updated 2018 Recycling Guide. 

Nearly 80% or more of the daily call volume at the Bucks County Planning Commission is from concerned residents who are looking for direction on safe and legal disposal alternatives for various household waste items. The 2018 Recycling Guide is meant to provide guidance, organized by material type, as to how and where to safely and legally dispose of these various items.  

We trust this will help residents to safely dispose of household materials and to further enhance our commitment to a healthy environment! 

Please also note that the Bucks County Planning Commission is currently scheduling the 2018 Household Hazardous Waste Collection events and will notify you once the final dates and locations have been confirmed.
