The County owned and operated Recycling Center, in Berlin Township is geographically located in the center of the County, on County property. It serves as the main collection and processing facility in the County system. It also houses the administrative offices of the entire Solid Waste Department.

Materials collected through the countywide drop off program are delivered to the Recycling Center, where they are processed and prepared for delivery to various markets. The Center also serves as a public drop off site for residential, as well as commercial entities throughout the County. The County’s recycling program is “Source Separated” in nature, whereby materials are separated by the homeowner and then placed in appropriate containers.
