Refuse & Recycling Pick Up

Pick-up or billing questions should be directed to County Waste at 570-685-7000. By ordinance, all residents are required to participate in County Waste’s collection services. This is the case regardless of how many people occupy your household or whether you spend a portion of the year away from your home.

Trash and recyclables are picked up each Friday morning. Please put out trash receptacles after dusk Thursday evening for Friday pick-up. Please remember to bring your empty receptacles in promptly. Please keep garbage cans off the street.  Refuse and recycling pick up will be delayed one day when a public holiday occurs during the week.  Chapter 20 Part 1 of the Code of Ordinances of the Borough of Clarks Green regulates Solid Waste Collection and Disposal.

Trash and Recycling containers are provided to residents free of charge by County Waste. Remember, the receptacles are the property of the hauler. Call the County Waste office if you need containers. Plastic food containers, aluminum and steel cans, and clear and colored glass along with paper and cardboard can all be co-mingled in the designated recycling containers.

Lackawanna County’s Recycling Center lessee, Lackawanna Recycling, Inc. is now accepting electronics, pallets, and large plastic containers or tubes with tops or lids.

Cardboard can also be dropped off in the dumpster behind the Borough building. The dumpster suitable for the cardboard is labeled specifically for this purpose.
