We unfortunately must cancel our spring collection events. Due to the nature of these events, they may require personal space contact, and we don’t want to jeopardize residents, volunteers and employees to any potential health risks.  Once business bans are lifted and large-group gatherings are no longer restricted, with time permitting and vendor and municipal host availability, I will do my best to reschedule our cancelled events for later this year. 

In lieu of the cancellations, once normal business hours resume:

the City of Bethlehem Theis/Cornfeld Recycling Center offers document shredding.  You do not need to be a Bethlehem resident or business to use this free service.  Please visit their website (https://www.bethlehem-pa.gov/Community-Economic-Development/Recycling/Free-Shredding-Services) or call 610-865-7082 for more information and/or to schedule an appoint if you have more than one (1) standard bankers/file-box worth of documents.  Again, hours of operation will need to be confirmed. 
DRC Technologies accepts electronics for recycling and disposal.  Pricing is similar to the county-wide collection events, and additional items (Freon Appliances, white goods, etc.) may also be brought for recycling and/or disposal.  DRC Technologies is located in Northampton Borough, more information can be found on their website (https://www.drc-tech.net/ewaste-recycling/) or by calling 610-502-0854.
