Fall is a busy time for Happy Valley with school activities, football games and a few vacations. It’s hard to keep everything organized, so we’ve put together a collection of trash and recycling reminders for the fall season.
COG Fall Mass Waste Collection Week is October 17-21.
The Central Region Council’s Fall Mass Waste Collection will take place October 17-21 for WM residential customers in the townships of Benner, College, Ferguson, Harris and Patton. Please visit www.crcog.net for new guidelines to ensure your items are collected.
Recycle Center Fall Tour Returns
Would you like to take a tour of the Center County Recycling and Refuse Authority? We offer free tours of our facility to schools, groups and organizations. Join us as we walk the facility grounds and discover where our trash and recycling goes after we leave our homes. Can’t you go directly to our facility? A virtual tour is also available. To schedule an in-person or virtual tour of CCRRA, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 814-238-7005.
Holiday Collection Schedule
Holidays may delay or change normal recycling and rejection collection dates. We publish a quarterly newsletter, with page 3 always featuring recycling and garbage collection changes. After 40,000 copies of the fall newsletter were printed and mailed, he realized that the COG’s holiday collection schedule was incorrect. There will be no changes to collection dates for COG residents this Christmas and New Year as collection staff will be working on their normal schedule. This has been fixed for the winter newsletter that will be distributed later this year.
Win a $50 Weis Markets Gift Card
This fall, CCRRA and Weis Markets will host a “Cleanest Tailgate Contest” at each Penn State home football game. For a chance to win, take a picture of the clean tailgate area at every Penn State home game and tag his CCRRA on any of your social pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). For each home game he chooses one $50 Weis Market Gift Card winner. Your next chance to win is October 22nd!
Recycling inside and outside Beaver Stadium
We’re working with Penn State University to recycle as many items as possible from home football games inside and outside the stadium. Inside the stadium there are bins for recycling empty bottles and cans. There are free blue bags outside the stadium for empty bottles and cans. The more bottles and cans you can keep from going to the landfill, the better. Please put recyclable items in the correct bins/bags.
We wish you all a wonderful autumn! Thank you for recycling.
