Need a Bin? Stop In.

Bin OptionsIf you still need a recycling bin, you can pick them up at the IRC  office, IRC municipal buildings or highway yards. 

  • 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)

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.

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.

Merry Christmas!

The IRC would like to wish all of Blair County a Merry Christmas!

As a reminder, we are not accepting wrapping paper in any of our recycling streams again this year.  We recommend using newspaper or brown kraft paper as a recyclable option.  Please dispose of all wrapping paper in your household trash.

Also, our Buckhorn Facility will be closed in observation of the holiday on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (Dec. 23rd, 24th & 25th) and will resume normal hours of operation on Saturday, December 26th, from 9am-3pm.
