Need a Bin? Stop In.

If you still need a recycling bin, you can pick them up at the IRC  office, IRC municipal  buildings or highway yards. Our residential bin distribution event the end of October was a rousing success but some residents missed the event.

  • The IRC Office at Altoona City Hall (1301 - 12th Street, Suite 8 in the basement)
  • The Altoona Highway Yard (5010 Sixth Avenue at Commerce Park)
  • The Logan Township Municipal Building (100 Chief Logan Circle just off 26th Street and Pleasant Valley Boulevard)
  • The Hollidaysburg Municipal Building (401 Blair Street)
  • The Tyrone Highway Yard (1500 Lincoln Avenue)
  • The Antis Township Municipal Building (909 North Second Street, Bellwood)

Residents should ideally have a bin with a lid for paper recycling and an open bin for bottles and cans. If you have an old damaged bin or a county bin (that says "Blair County Recycles") and wish to trade it in for a bin that can take a lid, please bring in the bin for a trade-in.  Very large households may qualify for a 25 gallon round container.

 

Bin Options

Lids are limited to one per household for paper recycling.  Wheel kits are available for purchase at the IRC office to all residents for $2.00 while supplies last.

Educators Lead Blight Fight

Litter, piles of trash, graffiti, overgrown yards, weed-covered street tree wells, illegal street signs...  Beyond being unsightly, these are the things upon which larger scale blight and property decay is built.

Yet where some see ugliness, others see opportunity.  Three educators, Altoona’s Robin Dishong, Hollidaysburg’s Andrea Walter and Tyrone’s Cummins McNitt, turned these unpleasant circumstances into a teachable moment and an opportunity to provide a service to the community during the last few weeks of the school year.  Each organized and energized students in their high schools to clean-up and beautify places that were not so beautiful.
