    Dear Friends,

         My, how much has changed in a short period of time.  Looking back at our last newsletter in February, we were talking about hoping to re-open our new and improved recycling center soon.  Then, quite literally, the whole world went to Hell in a Handbasket.
         If there is any good news, and thank goodness none of our immediate circle were affected health-wise, we were able to complete some needed upgrades during the downtime so we could re-open as soon as possible.  The other good news is that, since waste and recycling are essential services, we can open without having to wait for travel restrictions to be lifted.  With that being said .....

    Westmoreland Cleanways Recycling Center will open to the public at its new location on Monday, May 11, at Noon.
              355 Pleasant Unity Mutual Road
              Greensburg, PA  15601
    (Westmoreland Cleanways and Recycling Office and mailing address will remain at 128 Innovative Lane Suite 200,  Latrobe PA  15650)

      All recommended precautions and CDC guidelines have been implemented.  The following procedures are now in place:
    • All visitors must wear masks
    • Visitors must unload their own vehicles.  Staff will be on hand to assist the elderly and disabled upon request
    • If assistance is required, visitors will be required to exit their vehicle and step away following staff direction
    • Only Cash or Checks (made out to Westmoreland Cleanways) can be accepted.  Credit card service is not yet available.
    • List of Acceptable Material has changed slightly.  Please review the new list for acceptable items. 
        We suspect that we are going to be VERY busy the first couple weeks we're open, so we ask for everyone's patience as we figure out the new flow.
         As before, there are no residency requirements and no limit on the amount of material that can be brought to the center.  Our mission is to serve our community and to encourage recycling as much as can possibly be properly recycled.
    Westmoreland Cleanways website is completely updated with all the information you need:  address, operating hours, acceptable material, etc.  Feel free to share this information as you like.

    Again, thank you all for your patience.  Stay safe, and keep on recycling!
