Welcome to the Robesonia-Wernersville-Womelsdorf Council of Governments (COG) web site ...

REMEMBER: here in the Robesonia-Wernersville-Womelsdorf Trash COG, we have SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING — which means all paper products/cardboard go in the recycling can! You CAN bundle cardboard or put paper in Kraft bags next to your can, but that is not the preferred way! NO GLASS. NO PLASTIC BAGS FULL OF RECYCLED MATERIALS. Thank you.

!! ATTENTION RESIDENTS !! Trash and Recycling Collection — Changes for 2020

The Robesonia-Wernersville-Womelsdorf Council of Governments (COG) just awarded a 3 Year Contract to Advanced Disposal for trash and recycling collection starting in 2020. Due to the changing conditions in the recycling market, there will be a substantial increase in your trash & recycling bill.

County Waste will be performing their last recycling collection on Friday, December 27th. All residents must put out their blue recycling can, even if it is empty. After collecting the recyclables, County Waste will then be collecting the cans. (which are owned by County Waste)

Before the 1st of the year, you will be receiving a new Recycling Can from Advanced Disposal.

THE NEW RECYCLING CAN IS TO BE USED FOR RECYCLING ONLY! IF YOU USE IT FOR TRASH, ADVANCED DISPOSAL WILL NOT PICK UP YOUR TRASH AND YOU CAN BE CITED!

All three Boroughs have updated trash & recycling ordinances that make recycling mandatory, that is why we supply recycling containers. The new containers will be grey with a yellow lid.

The following changes for trash and recycling will begin on January 1st, 2020:

Other questions regarding these services may be directed to your borough office (610-693-3474) or by calling Advance Disposal at 1-800-710-1333 or through their website at www.advanceddisposal.com.

Thank you, Bruce A. Edwards
