NEWSPAPERS: stack and tie with string or place in a paper bag or a container of its own. DO NOT put in plastic bags or mix loose newspaper with other recyclables.
Ebensburg Borough is not large enough to be required to have a recycling program, but instead does so voluntarily. Free recycling containers are available at the borough office for those wishing to participate.
The closest dropoff site is located on Manor Drive, next to Lions ballpark and near Lake Rowena. For other recycling options, please contact the Cambria County recycling office at (814) 472-2109 or visit www.cambriarecycles.org
