    Exclamation Paper, Cardboard Recycling Changes in Lackawanna County

    LACKAWANNA COUNTY, Pa. -- People in Lackawanna County are noticing a change in how their recycling is collected since the start of the new year.

    For the first time, homeowners in Lackawanna County will have to separate cardboard from other paper. It's the latest change handed down from the private recycling center many of the county's townships and boroughs use.

    Many of the sidewalks in Scranton show the remnants of Christmas -- lots of cardboard boxes waiting for recycling pickup.

    But Scrantonians may notice the DPW making two trips, one for newspaper and office paper and another for all that cardboard.

    Many municipalities in Lackawanna County are switching up the way they collect paper recyclables in 2020. Dickson City is one of them.

    If I ever move there, it won't be a problem, because I have never recycled paper.

    I get carbon credits for working at Walmart, where we crush, bundle, and recycle tons of cardboard and plastic.

    At home, it goes in the trash can.

    I recycle cardboard by using it to start fires in my woodstoves.

    All those Amazon boxes work great for getting a fire started.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    That’s because Uncle Louie DeNaples was using prison inmates to separate the paper and cardboard. Certain individuals put and end to it because he was paying slave wages.
