Recycling Option for Southampton Township Residents

Lurgan Township recently began a Recycling and Pay-As-You-Throw trash program. Lurgan has graciously opened the program to Southampton Township Residents. If you plan on taking advantage of this opportunity, here are a few things you should know:

Recycling Days are Always:
2nd & 4th Saturdays of the Month
8:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon



Recyclables can be brought in any container you wish to dump yourself. (Help will be available for those unable to dump their own. (They may not be left in plastic bags.)

  • Plastics #1 and #2
  • Bemetal Food Cans
  • Green, Clear and Brown Glass

These items can be co-mingled (put together). Please rinse them out:

  • Aluminum Can (separate if you wish it’s not mandatory; but helps a little bit.
  • Magazines (can be put in a box and then dumped when you get to the bin-they do not need tied)
  • Newspaper (can be put in brown paper bag – they do not need tied)
  • Paper – Non-shredded and shredded office paper
  • Cardboard (please break down if you’re able, if not, it can be done there. You may also add your grayboard or cereal-type boxes).
  • Styrofoam of any type-peanuts too!



You may choose to cancel your curbside trash pickup and elect to take advantage of Lurgan’s pay-as-you-throw trash. This would include anything that isn’t recyclable.

Up to 35 gal. Bags = $2.00
39-55 gal. Bags = $4.00
