Yardley Borough’s Annual Recycling Day, scheduled for Saturday, April 26th, from 9:00am to 1:00pm, provides local residents and businesses with the opportunity to do some early spring cleaning while protecting the environment.
This “rain or shine” event, co-sponsored by the Yardley Borough Environmental Advisory Commission (EAC) and the Yardley Business Association (YBA), takes place in Buttonwood Park, adjacent to the Yardley Town Center in the borough.
Entry to the event will be off of Main Street, between Firehouse Cycles and The Face and Body Spa. Volunteers will direct anyone with donations to drop off locations within Buttonwood Park.
E-Waste will be collecting electronics equipment. Recycling Day also offers the convenience of on-site shredding of paper, documents and CDs. Any “sensitive” documents will be shredded directly in front of the person and disposed of properly.
On the same day and in conjunction with the event, the Yardley Borough Police Department sponsors a prescription drug collection. All unused medications, current or expired, will be accepted at the Yardley Borough Police Station.
No sharps of any kind will be accepted.
Unacceptable Items Include:
- Alkaline batteries
- Antifreeze or used motor oil
- Car batteries
- Hazardous waste or materials
- Lead paint
- Regular paint
