The Big Blue Bin program was established to provide residential recycling services to areas that do not have access to curbside recycling.

There are 12 sites in Lawrence County and five sites in Mercer County.

The amount of material that is collected in this program is significant.  On an annual basis, approximately 1,400 tons are collected in Lawrence County and 800 tons in Mercer County.  This is equal to 4,400,000 pounds and would easily fill up 110,000 full-sized garbage bags.

Lawrence Countyís program was recognized with Waste Watchers Awards in 2007, 2009, and 2010.  Because of its overall efficiency it is being copied by other communities in Pennsylvania.

Most sites are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Check the list of recycling sites for hours, addresses, and special notes.

Please remember that this program is for residential use only.  Businesses that want help setting up a recycling program are encouraged to contact us.  Also, if your business is located in a municipality with more than 5,000 people you are required to have a curbside recycling program at your establishment.

Finally, just because something may be labeled recyclable does not mean that it can be recycled in your local program.

Read the list of acceptable materials.  Placing other materials into the bins adds a significant cost to the program because they have to be removed and landfilled!
