Recycling in Bedford County

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.

Programs

There are two recycling programs within the county. The Tri-County Recycling Drop-Off Program, administered by the South Central Counties Solid Waste Authority, currently operates 5 drop-off sites in Bedford County which are listed below. These are commingled, single-stream bins and the items accepted are described in this brochure.

The Conservation District operates a separate recycling facility south of Everett along SR 26, Clear Ridge Road. The Clearville Recycling Center accepts a broader range of recyclables than the drop-off sites of the tri-county program but itenms must be sorted. The program is described here.
