County Names 16 Sites for Campaign Sign Recycling
NORRISTOWN PA – Locations in Gilbertsville, Collegeville, Skippack, and Harleysville are among 16 recycling sites designated this year to accept no-longer-needed election campaign yard signs. They will be available for materials to be dropped off during regular business hours from Wednesday (Nov. 9, 2022) through Nov. 15 (Tuesday), the Montgomery County Recycling Office said.
Because plastic campaign signs and metal stands are not accepted as part of curbside recycling, area residents and election campaign personnel can recycle signs at the interim locations instead of putting them in the trash, the office noted Thursday (Nov. 4). Accepted materials include paperboard and plastic (corrugated and film) yard signs and metal stands
