Lower Merion Township, PA - The campaigns over, the commercials have stopped, and now it's time to deal with those nasty little yard signs. Lower Merion Township and Montgomery County have arranged to recycle campaign signs that have popped up on most streets throughout town. You have options on how to get rid of these signs efficiently and in an ecologically friendly way. You should not just throw the campaign signs into the trash.
“By recycling the campaign signs, all of the metal, cardboard, and plastic components go back into use, to make other products" stated Veronica Harris, Recycling Manager for Montgomery County.
Lower Merion and Narberth residents may drop off their campaign signs through November 13, 2018, at the Lower Merion Township Municipal Complex, which is located at 1300 N. Woodbine Ave. in Penn Valley.
According to Harris, it is still the responsibility of each Campaign to clean up and take away the signs. But the county program connects candidates and residents with drop off points so that the signs can be recycled instead o being throw in the trash.
Residents may recycle some of the materials independently; cardboard signs can be recycled and placed with other curbside recycling collections materials, and the plastic bag type signs can be recycled with plastic grocery bags at your local retail or grocery store. Cardboard and plastic signs will be accepted at the township’s drop off location along with the corrugated plastic signs and the metal stands which are much more difficult to recycle.
The program lasts through November 13. Township and County appreciate your help by recycling.
