Glass and Recycling

By | Announcements, Recycling

The facility that we bring your recyclables to has asked that we remove glass from our recycling.  This means that we, Signature Waste, can no longer accept your glass recycling.  The recycling center we use tells us the expenses associated with recycling glass outweighs the value of recycling glass to begin with.  Please read the following article it goes into detail about the need and the issues of accepting glass.

High costs and limited markets puts a crack in glass recycling.

If you are looking for alternative solutions to recycle your glass bottles and material click on your area below for a list of community drop of sites where you can bring your sorted glass recycling.  These sites are able to continue recycling glass because they do not have the added expense of sorting glass bits out of co-mingled (or mixed) recycling material.

Help Us Help You Recycle!

By | Recycling, Uncategorized

For years York county did not have any facilities accepting recycling material.  This means all those bottles, glass, and cans you so proudly rolled to the street every other week had nowhere to go!  Your haulers, including Signature Waste Systems, were caught between a rock and a hard place.  You were doing your part.  Your efforts to keep our planet a little cleaner deserved to be rewarded.  That’s why 7/1/2019 Signature Waste in collaboration with our neighbors in Tega Cay successfully petitioned to be the first and only hauler accepted at York county recycling facilities.   After a successful month with Signature, in 8/1/2019, York county was finally convinced to open recycling access to all haulers, not just Signature Waste.  York county was finally recycling.

Now we all have the great responsibility of doing the same in Lancaster county.  Currently we have NO recycling facilities in Lancaster county.  Some of our competition have resorted to claiming they recycle and are making their customers pay more for it!  Not only do we have to hold these companies accountable, we have to hold our community leaders accountable.  Zone for recycling centers, bring those facilities to our neighborhoods, keep our haulers honest about their recycling practices, help us make Lancaster green!

We want to hear from you!

How can we bring recycling to Lancaster?
