Lycoming County – Lycoming County Resource Management Services has relocated its public recycling drop off site at the landfill, 447 Alexander Drive in Montgomery, to be more accessible. You will no longer have to check in with the weighmaster at the scalehouse for recycling.

The site has moved from the self-dump area to a location in the LCRMS administrative parking lot right before the landfill scalehouse. Yellow barriers surround this site. Please follow the signs stating “Recycling Drop Off Site.”
