Curbside Recycling Program

The MCMUA collects single-stream mixed recyclables. This means that aluminum, glass bottles and jars, steel cans and plastic containers can be mixed with recyclable paper including newspaper, corrugated cardboard, junk mail, office paper, magazines, cartons, etc., for curbside collection. Additionally, none of the newspaper or cardboard needs to be bundled or tied. There is still a 50-pound weight limit on the recycling container put out at curbside for collection by the MCMUA.

Chester Borough does not provide a municipal recycling depot where recyclables can be dropped off. If you missed a recycling collection, please hold on to and put out the recyclables during the next available collection.

For additional information please visit: mcmua.com

Bulk Items (by request)

All bulk items are collected every Wednesday. Please put out with your garbage and make sure stickers are attached. Stickers must be purchased before 12:00pm on Tuesdays for a Wednesday bulk pick-up. Access the bulk pick-up application form here.
