Garbage & Recycling
Weekly curbside collection of the following items is available to all households in Indiana Borough:
Aluminum & steel/bi-metal cans
Glass bottles & jars
Plastic bottles (type #1 & #2)
Aluminum, steel, glass, and newspapers should be placed in the green bins. Plastics must be sorted separately and placed in the blue bins.
Collection of recyclables will occur weekly on the same day as garbage collection. Please note that your bins must be placed at the curbside or at the end of the driveway or they may not be taken.
Bins may also be rejected if they contain items that aren't approved for curbside recycling, such as broken glass, food waste or other non-recyclable materials. An orange sticker will be placed on rejected bins explaining why it was rejected. If your bin is rejected, please clean it out, remove the sticker, and place it back out the following week.
All replacement bins are $15.00 and can be obtained from the municipal office at 80 N. 8th Street, Indiana Pennsylvania, 15701
