Revised - Critical Information for the Penn Township Recycling Program / Site
Dec 2016 Penn Township along with other recycle locations in Snyder County have received news that when our current contracts with our hauler LCRMS (Lycoming County Resource Management Services) expires on 12/31/2016, they WILL NOT be renewed in their current form. Meaning we will have to pay to have the bins emptied... the expected cost is @ $25K.
Penn Township specifically has never paid to have materials pulled. With the current state of recycling markets LCRMS loses money each time they pull one of our bins. We are actively working with SC Recycling, DEP, DCED, the County and others in our situation to try and find the best solution.
Fast Forward - 2017 -
Our site is up and running, accepting materials from our residents and from neighboring municipalities. We are able to keep this site open to all because of ACT 13 funds received by Snyder County, who generously made this money available to those sites who do not limit access. Penn Township will receive @ $17K toward the cost to move our materials. It won't cover the entire cost, but most of it. At this time these funds are only available for 2017, hopefully other opportunities will be available for the future or our site could close to anyone who is NOT a Penn Township resident.
While we are receiving some funding to keep our site going, the township will remain vigilant to be sure our users are following the rules. Rules set by our hauler, not Penn Township.
Basically not much has changed...but please be sure you break all cardboard boxes down to save space. Same with plastics, compress all plastic best you can without making a fulltime job of it. While the bins are clearly marked asking users to compress plastic, its pretty incredible to see how many people have little regard for our signs.
ALL CARDBOARD BOXES AND MILK JUGS!
This is what must happen to all cardboard boxes, no matter the type or the size if you are using our recycle center! Same with all gallon milk jugs, please.

Penn Township Zoning Map and Zoning Ordinance
For some time the Penn Township Planning Commission, at the request of the Board of Supervisors have been working to update the entire Penn Township Zoning Ordinance 2005-01. With this update so comes the possibility of updates to the Penn Township Zoning Map.
Please DO NOT be alarmed there will be changes to zoning that will happen without informing our residents. No changes will be finalized and made to our ordinance or zoning map without proper advertisement to get word to our residents. This information will come via this website, emails to township residents, the township newsletter, public hearings and advertisements in the local newspaper.
Over the years, a few residents have asked the township to consider changes to certain zones in the township. If you are one of these people and are a landowner in Penn Township and you want a zone change considered for your land parcels, please provide your request in writing to Penn Township, Attn: Planning Commission, 228 Clifford Road, Selinsgrove, PA 17870. This written request should include as much detail of your situation that you can provide along with contact information.
The map below is the Penn Township Zoning Map. While it may not be the easiest to see it will give you an idea how Penn Township is zoned. The map prior to adding to this website is a zoomable map. If that feature is inaccessible on the map below...if you email email@example.com and request a zoomable version we will get that right out to you.
