Recycling locations in Armstrong County will change ahead of the holiday season, organizers have announced.

Changes are being made to make it possible for the clients of the Progressive Workshop of Armstrong County, which partners with the county to staff the recycling centers, to spend time with their families during the holidays.

“We are giving our clients this time off to go home and visit with their families and friends,” Matt Ardeno, PWAC vice president of production and sales, said in a release.

The recycling trailers will be removed from all 11 remote drop-off sites to the county recycling center at the Armsdale Complex in Rayburn Township before Christmas through the first week in January.

Recyclable materials will still be collected.

“All of the trailers will be located at the Recycling Center,” Ardeno said. “You will still be able to go out there and place items in the trailers.”

Those looking to recycle are asked to note the following schedule:

• Dec. 18-22: Recycling trailers at all 11 remote drop-off locations throughout Armstrong County will be pulled from sites.

• Dec. 25-Jan. 1: PWAC and the Recycling Center at 139 Armsdale Road, Kittanning, will be closed for the holiday break.

• Jan. 2-5: Recycling trailers will be returned to all 11 sites.

Recyclables accepted are newspapers, office paper and magazines, corrugated cardboard, aluminum and steel cans, #1 and #2 plastic bottles and jugs, green, clear and brown glass bottles and jars and used motor oil.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
