The IRC Recycling and Composting facility accepts a variety of items for recycling at the Duncansville Facility.  The following are the different types of paper and cardboard and the related fee schedule that are accepted for recycling drop-off at the compost facility.  You can find a complete list of materials accepted and a description of our composting operations here.

The materials will need to be separated into the categories listed in the table below.  It is important for residents to keep the different materials separate to ensure recyclability.  All of our paper materials will go in one bin and the cardboard materials will go in another bin.  Our facility is a source separated facility.  This means that the recycling collected at our facility needs to be separated into the individual commodity streams.  The recycling at our facility gets directly bailed and sold on the recycling markets.  There is no one to sort recycling that has been mixed together at our facility.  When recycling is mixed with trash it is trash.  Please pay attention to the different separations when using our facility.
