Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb Recycling

The Township is participating in a program sponsored by PPL Electric to recycle compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. This is only for the small fluorescent bulbs, not the long fluorescent tubes. You can recycle your unbroken CFL bulbs by bringing them to the Township Office during normal business hours.

Community Events

Recycling containers will be provided for any community event held at a Windsor Township owned facility for materials included in the Windsor Township recycling program.
