New Truck to Make Recycling Easier in Hatboro
A $115,000 grant that Hatboro received will aid in the purchase of a new and larger vehicle for recycling pickup.
Tired of breaking down and tying your boxes for recycling?
By year’s end, Hatboro officials said residents would no longer need to do that.
Hatboro Borough Manager Fred Zollers said the borough found out recently that its $115,000 recycling grant was approved. The funding, which requires a 10 percent municipal match, would be used to buy a new and much larger vehicle for recycling pickup.
“This will be like a standard trash truck,” Zollers said of the rear loader trash truck.
For residents, that means no more breaking down boxes, according to Zollers.
“We’ll be able to take them,” he said.
Currently, Hatboro recycles plastic, cardboard and paper. Zollers said “everything but Styrofoam and PVC pipe” is collected.
