Recycling Closed 12/22/22

Selinsgrove Borough is announcing the closure of the Recycling facility located at 219 Sassafras Street for today 12/22/22.

The Public Works Crew will be plowing and treating the Borough roads making it impossible to guarantee the safety of residents attempting to recycle.
