INTRODUCTION

Since the advent of the “recycling law,” the Municipal Waste, Planning, Recycling
and Waste Reduction Act (Act 101) that was enacted in 1988, we have attained a
recycling rate in Bucks County of about 35 percent. The legislation addresses the
residential recycling of paper, food and beverage containers (glass, aluminum, steel
and plastic) and many materials generated in commercial establishments. However,
there are still many products and materials that can be reused and recycled that are
not addressed by the legislation.

The Guide to Recycling in Bucks County was first published in 1997 during a time
when recycling efforts had attained great success. Curbside recycling programs were
in place and the amount of material being discarded into the municipal waste stream
was significantly reduced. As a result, many people were searching for ways to divert
even more material from the waste stream that were not typically part of the curbside
programs. In response to these inquiries, this guide was developed to provide
suggestions that would aid in the reuse and recycling of many products and
materials. These materials typically require the ‘owners’ to take it upon themselves to
locate a facility or program that will accept such items for reuse or recycling. This
guide was designed to assist them in doing that.

Now, almost eight years after the preparation of the first Guide to Recycling in Bucks
County, it is necessary to update it in order to include new information on where
many products and materials may be taken for reuse or recycling. Whether
measuring by the number of units or total weight, one waste category in particular
has increased at a greater rate than any other - electronics. Old computers and their
peripherals, televisions, and cell phones are being disposed of at an alarming rate.
The National Safety Council estimates that by 2007, Americans will have discarded
as many as 500 million computers. Due to the hazardous components in many
electronics, most notable being lead, old computers and portable televisions have
now become a regular part of Bucks County’s household hazardous waste collection
program.

Many household materials are considered hazardous and are no longer permitted to
be disposed in the local landfill. Therefore, individuals who chose to purchase these
materials need to accept some of the responsibility for their proper disposal. Whether
it is that next computer, cell phone, or a non-recyclable helium tank to fill a bouquet
of party balloons, the ultimate disposal of that product should be considered prior to
its purchase. We cannot expect that “they” will provide a ready means of disposal for
a product just because its owner is ready to dispose of it. There may not always be a
readily available facility to accept our particular waste.




                                          iii
The Guide to Recycling in Bucks County is designed to provide information and
ideas on how and where to properly recycle, or dispose of, if appropriate, a variety of
materials typically generated from residences that, at the very least, are reusable or
recyclable, but may also have potentially harmful impacts on the environment if they
are simply thrown into the regular trash.

Included in the guide is information about:

   -   what to do with old motor oil and antifreeze
   -   what to do with old tires
   -   what is the best way to handle “sharps” (syringes) produced in the home?
   -   what should I do with my old computer?
   -   should I recycle all household batteries?
   -   how to properly dispose of old appliances
   -   what to do with a variety of other hard to recycle items

It is not expected that this guide will provide the answer for every possible material
that finds its way into the residential trash. But it will help in providing some direction
on how to handle many of these products and materials.

The information will provide you with some specific ways to recycle materials that
may have been considered nonrecyclable as well as cause the reader to reevaluate
their current buying habits. A review of this guide will also show that some items, due
to their hazardous characteristics, need to be stored until the next household
hazardous waste collection program. So, for example, buying only what you need of
a product for the job at hand is important.

After you have had an opportunity to use the guide, if you have any questions, or
suggestions and comments for future updates of this booklet, we would like to hear
from you. We can be contacted at:

                  RECYCLING FROM “A” TO “Z”
                  Recycling and Disposal Alternatives for
                      Various Household Materials


                                              A
Aerosol Cans
      Empty
              Many curbside programs will accept empty aerosol cans in with the commingled
              recyclables. Contact your hauler or municipality for details.
              If not recyclable – dispose of in regular trash.
      Not empty
              Use up according to label instructions, and, if applicable, recycle can as above.
              Donate to a local organization, if contents are usable paint (i.e. local Theater groups)
              See “Household Hazardous Waste”

Ammunition/Explosives
      Small Caliber
         For suggestions on how to safely dispose of small caliber ammunition call your local
         police department or check the Yellow Pages of you telephone directory under —”Guns &
         Gunsmiths.” Some gun shops will accept small caliber ammunition. Call first to determine
         if they will accept your materials before handling or
         transporting.
              Dimmings Gun shop, Chalfont, 215-822-8240

Animal Waste

Appliances (which normally contain Freon – non-working)
      Air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and refrigerators
         Appliances that contain or once contained Freon, whether there is Freon in the system
         now or not, are handled separately from regular trash.
            Contact your trash hauler (see yellow pages under "rubbish") to obtain information on
            the cost and procedure for collection. Some will accept an appliance with Freon,
            others will take only if the Freon has been properly removed by a certified HVAC
            technician.
                 For certified Freon removal contact a certified refrigeration repair company. Some will
                 provide this service for a fee. See Yellow Pages - "Appliances – Major - Repair" or
                 "Refrigerator & Freezer - Service and Repair."

             contractors. Any contractor should be able to show a certification of having taken Labor
             and Industry course, plus annual recertification. PADEP suggests that if asbestos is in
             original condition as when installed (not physically damaged) it does not warrant being
             removed.

         There is no site or facility where a resident can take products such as poisons
         (insecticides, herbicides), solvents (gasoline, kerosene, paint thinner), oil-based paint,
         etc. for proper disposal. The company that we work with at our scheduled Household
         Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection days are regulated such that they are not permitted
         to accept material transported to their facility by the public. It is suggested that someone
         who has HHW, and must get rid of it now, find a friend or relative who is willing to accept
         the material for the purpose of using it or storing it until a future collection event. Dates,
         times and locations of upcoming collection events may be obtained from the Bucks
         County Planning Commission (215-345-3400) or the Bucks County HHW website:
         www.buckscounty.org/departments/planning.
