The Borough Needs Your Help in the Battle Against Recycling Contamination!

A contaminated recycling load costs $175 per ton to dispose of as opposed to $10 per ton for a clean recycling load. When non-recyclable items (contamination) end up in the recycling loads they have the potential to turn the entire load into trash, increasing processing costs and additional service charges.

  • PLASTIC BAGS - plastic bags and film get tangled in machinery.
  • FOOD SOILED ITEMS - soiled items will turn an entire load of recycling into trash (RINSE YOUR ITEMS)
  • WET PAPER-please try to keep your recyclables dry 
  • E-waste- E-waste can be recycled but NOT CURBSIDE please bring E-waste to DPW recycling yard
  • TANGLERS- Rubber hoses & wires can shut down an entire recycling center
  • HAZARDOUS MATERIAL- can cause serious injury to workers
In 2017 China began to limit the quantity of material it accepts for recycling and in 2018 added specific contamination limits.  The significant changes are affecting the recycling industry world-wide. As a result, our focus on quality is higher than ever, as we work to ensure long-term sustainability of our recycling programs.

Key points to keep in mind with plastic recyclables:
  • ALWAYS look for recycling sign indicating numbers 1 or 2
  • ALWAYS rinse out containers (plastic, glass & aluminum). 
  • NEVER place your recyclables in plastic bags when putting out for curbside collections
  • ALL recyclables MUST be in a clearly marked recycling container.

One of the easiest ways to help is to NOT put your recyclables
in plastic grocery bags or clear garbage bags.  


Non-Solicitation List -  Resident Form

All vendors that wish to solicit in Lincoln Park, door-to-door, must first submit an application to the Clerk's Office with a $40.00 solicitor fee.  

The vendor is then directed to the Police Department for a background check.   Vendors are given the current non-solicitation list when they obtain their solicitation permit and they are not permitted to solicit any residence that is on the list.

If you have a non-solicitation decal on your front door/window and someone does come to your house, please contact the police.  

The "NON-SOLICITATION LIST" is maintained in the Clerk's Office.  If you wish to be on the list or would like to update your information or get another non-solicitation decal, please complete the form and either mail or email it to the Clerk's.  We will send you a non-solicitation sticker to place on a window or door.  

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions through the following e-mail links:
Cindi Sloane, Municipal Clerk or Courtney Fitzpatrick, Deputy Municipal Clerk.

Lincoln Park Exceptional Children - LPEC

Who are “Exceptional Children”? 
Exceptional children are not only those with special needs, but those that may face challenges in thinking, communication, movement, getting along with others, and taking care of one’s self.  Exceptional children may also have challenges with speech impediments, shyness and/or gross or fine motor skill challenges.  Exceptional children may have ADHD or they may be a “gifted child” that faces challenges from their academic abilities.  When we become educated on the exceptional child , we can  help lead the child toward being included with, not excluded from, regular activities.
