The West Lampeter Township Recycling Committee is now accepting acid core batteries at all Community Recycling Events!
Acid core batteries are typically used in cars, lawn tractors, motorcycles, boats, tractors, etc.
The Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority is partnering with municipalities, community organizations and Penn State Master Gardeners to conduct home compost workshops where residents will learn how to recycle organic waste from their kitchens and gardens instead of putting it in the trash. Composting is an excellent way to recycle vegetable scraps, grass clippings, leaves, and other organic materials and turn them into a useful and valuable product to naturally improve the soil.
Workshop attendees will also learn how to build effective, yet inexpensive home compost bins to meet their needs. Each household in attendance will be eligible to enter a drawing to receive a free kitchen scrap collection bucket courtesy of US EPA, Region III.
