Trash & Recycling Update 2/17/21

Waste Management has caught-up with normal trash and recycling collection in the City of Allentown following the late Monday into early Tuesday ice storm.

City customers may return to placing out their trash and recycling as they normally would. 

To report any missed trash and recycling collections, please call the following business day.

The city is closing the Recycling Drop-off Center on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive at 5 p.m. today. Drop-off Center staff will be part of the city’s snow plowing force tomorrow.  The Drop-off Center will reopen after snow is cleared from the site.

For more information, please call the Bureau of Recycling and Solid Waste at 610-437-8729 or visit
