State-Mandated Recycling
Each municipality in Montgomery County directs their own recycling program within the parameters of PA Act 101.  Please contact your municipality directly with questions about your curbside trash and recycling.

The Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling, and Waste Prevention Act of 1988 (Act 101) mandates recycling in municipalities with a populations over 10,000 and those with a population between 5,000 and 10,000 with a population densities greater than 300 people per square mile. Because population varies greatly throughout the county, each recycling program in Montgomery County’s 62 municipalities looks a little bit different.
