Recycling in Bedford County

Clearville recycling Center

Overview

The Conservation District staff includes a Recycling Coordinator, a position partially funded by the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The Recycling Coordinator has an omnibus role, developing programs that fulfill Bedford County's obligations as approved in the Solid Waste Management Plan, conducting education programs, maintaining records for all recycled materials collected by municipal and volunteer programs, providing coordiantion and communication for the Solid Waste Authority Drop-off Bin Program, and filing annual progress and performance reports to DEP.

During 2006, the Recycling Coordinator, along with other Conservation District staff, expanded recycling opportunities in Bedford County with the opening of the Conservation District's Clearville Recycling Center (pictured above). Currently accepting more categories of recyclable materials than the SWA drop-off bin system, the BCCD Recycling Center continues to improve its service for county residents. Recently, the Conservation District initiated a paper recycling program with local schools.

 

 

NOTICE: The BCCD Recycling Center on SR 26 cannot accept electronic devices or any type of appliance until further notice. Please call 814-623-7900 ext. 101 if you have questions.

More Programs, More Choices

The Bedford County Conservation District Clearville Recycling Center requires sorting of most acceptable materials but can recycle some other materials that are not part of the SWA bin program. A flyer describing this program is available here. A map with directions is avalable here. A link to Google Maps with 3D site imagery is available here.

The SWA Drop-off Bin Recycling Program has been in a state of flux during recent years, with bin locations being eliminated, recyclable categories changed or reduced, and then new bin locations added. This program is now a commingled, single-stream collection system, requiring no sorting of the acceptable items. The current status of this program is described in a flyer available here.
