*RESIDENTS - Please note that Waste Management is having an increase in prohibited medical waster such as needles and IV bags in the recyclables. Inclusion of these materials present great risks to our recyclable sorters. Please keep this in mind when putting out your recyclables.
Please remember to call 811 before digging to have underground utility lines marked. Striking an underground electric or natural gas line can cause serious injury, damages and service interruption. Every digging project, no matter how large or small warrants a call to 811. Installing a mailbox, building a deck, planting a tree and laying a patio are all examples of digging projects where a call to 811 should be one of the first steps.
Pennsylvania's new electronics recylcing law takes effect in January 2013 and will mean a few changes for the residents of our community. The new law bans the disposal of TV's and computer equipment at transfer stations and landfills. Beginning January 1, 2013, route crews will no longer pick up televisions, and computer equipment for disposal. Computer equipment includes laptops, monitors, CPU's, printers, scanners, keyboards, mouses, speakers, cables and battery backups. If these items are placed at the curb they will be left there.
Here are a few other inportant points you should know about the state's new electronics recycling law:
- Households and operators of businesses with fewer than 50 employees have access to FREE recycling of TV's and computer equipment. More information about electronics recylcing service is available from Waste Managements e-cycling Web site at http://wme-cyclesinpa.com/index.jsp or from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's Website at www.depweb.state.pa.us
- Counties in Southeastern Pennsylvania jointly hold electronic collection events. Please contact your county at 215-345-3414 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. to see when the next event will be held.
- Companies recylcing electronics in Pennsylvania must have R2 or similar certification that assures the public that any information contained in recycled devices is protected until the time the device is destroyed, and that human health and the environment are protected at all steps during the recycling process, whether the recycling occurs in the United States or abroad.

Welcome to Historic Langhorne Borough - a National Register District in PA since 1987. Through tree-lined streets, down quaint alleys and in the midst of door-yard gardens within this one-half square mile boundary, over 300 years of history is apparent. Our history and unique identity continues to be reinforced by residents with deep community pride and vision.
A village of less than a square mile surrounded by dense suburban developement, Langhorne maintains its identity through foresight, hard work, and continuing vigilance. Since 1970, local government has enacted historic zoning; purchased and saved a farm within the borough boundaries; and created an Arts Council, Recreation Board, Historical Association, and a Shade Tree Commission that has planted 155 trees.
