About Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority
With over 25,000 curbside residents, 125 drop-off recycling bins and over 500 commercial establishments throughout the county, Centre County residents along with the Pennsylvania State University have many avenues to recycle. As well as continuing to recycle the required materials by state law (Act 101), we provided Centre County residents with a yearly Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event and year round electronics recycling. Centre County's recycling rate has climbed to over 50% and continues to rise.
It is the mission of the Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority to provide environmentally sound and economically efficient integrated waste management, reduction and recycling services; to work cooperatively with the private sector and to provide educational services with the intent of enhancing the quality of life in Centre County.
