Montgomery County Announces 2017 Campaign Sign Recycling Program


Norristown, PA (Nov. 1, 2017) – Campaign signs are popping up around Montgomery County reminding residents to cast their votes on Nov. 7. After the excitement of Election Day, what happens to all of those signs? In Montgomery County, they can be recycled.

As opposed to disposing of campaign signs in the trash, recycling puts the metal, cardboard, and plastic back into use to make other products. Montgomery County, PA residents may drop off their campaign signs from Nov. 8 to Nov. 13, 2017 at participating locations, listed below, during normal operating hours.

Montgomery County is partnering with Republic Services, Cougle’s Recycling, Inc., the Montgomery County Democratic and Republican Committees, and participating municipalities to recycle political campaign signs and stakes from this year’s election. This collection program does not seek to take the campaign sign clean up responsibilities away from the campaigns. Instead, the program hopes to connect candidates and residents with drop off points so that signs can be recycled instead of thrown in the trash.

Between Nov. 8 to Nov. 13, candidates and residents will be able to drop off campaign signs at these participating locations during normal operating hours:
