Recycling Container Update

Beginning Monday, August 31, Waste Connections will only accept recycling that is placed curbside in either the 35-gallon toters or the 18-gallon bins that were distributed to residents earlier this year.

The contract between the Borough of Carlisle and Waste Connections requires recycling materials to be placed in the designated toter or bin. The deadline for the changeover was originally April 1 but was extended due to COVID-19. Additional containers can be purchased online and over the phone.

  • Order by Phone: Call Borough Hall at 717-249-4422 during regular business hours (M-F, 7:30 AM-4:30 PM). Residents will be required to provide their credit card information and delivery address. Note: Callers will not incur convenience fees for this service.
  • Order Online: Access the Borough of Carlisle Parks & Recreation secure online payment site at In the “Search” field, type “recycling” and then choose the style of container you wish to purchase. Note: The Borough’s online credit card service provider, ActiveNet, charges a convenience fee for this service.
