Beginning in January, residents in Franklin and Oil City who are currently serviced by Tri-County will be able to leave curbside recyclables along with their regular garbage.

"We wanted to do this in a non-contract area in Venango County and chose Cranberry Township," Jerry explained. "We will service our existing customers and are promoting new business up there as well."

Customers will receive notification by mail about recycling cart delivery and pickups will begin the week of January 7. Recycling collections will occur every two weeks at no additional charge.

Aluminum and metal cans, plastics numbered 1, 2, and 5, newsprint/office papers/junk mail, and corrugated cardboard will all be collected.

Other items like plastic bags, toys, scrap metals, styrofoam, pump/spray bottles, take-out food containers and other materials will not be accepted.

“[Tri-County’s] ownership has always tried to do more recycling and so we are now moving toward that. It's convenient for Cranberry Township residents who won't have to take it to the drop-offs," said Bowser. "It's a win-win for everyone, keeping these materials out of landfills and letting them be recycled and used again."
