Dear Lehigh County Household Hazardous Waste Event Attendee, The new date for the Lehigh County Household Hazardous Waste Event is Saturday, November 14th, 2020. You are receiving this email because you had previously completed the mandatory pre-registration on the Lehigh County website. We apologize for the delay in this communication however due to COVID-19, the State added requirements beyond their initial approval to allow us to move forward with this event. We simply wanted to be able to communicate those requirements to you once we had the full list and understood our responsibilities going forward. Here are the new additional instructions:
• Place all materials that you are disposing of in the trunk of your car, or rear of your SUV, or your pickup truck.
• You must stay inside your vehicle at all times! Keep your windows rolled up until told to do otherwise by an employee.
• Masks are required to attend this event while on County property (Coca Cola Park), even inside your vehicle.
• When you get to the front of the line, only the driver may at that time roll down the driver’s side window to give their name and their address. A County employee will take the information from a distance of at least ten (10) feet. Once the appointment has been confirmed, the driver will be motioned forward to the HHW contractor.
• When directed by the contractor’s employee, pop open the trunk or rear of your vehicle remotely.
• After the contractor has emptied the materials from your vehicle, they will close the rear of your vehicle and motion you out the exit.
• Please exit Coca Cola property via the marked exit at that time.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call the Recycling Hotline at 610-782-3073. When communicating with your residents we ask for your cooperation regarding the following:
• This event is for Lehigh County Residential use only!
• If you know the location of the event we ask you to refrain from divulging that information to any resident that might inquire.
Instead, encourage them to go to the front page of our website, click on the link on October 1st or some time thereafter and follow the directions to pre-register. This is a mandatory requirement of the State to manage the attendees regarding the current COVID-19 guidelines. If you give this information out before they pre-register, it encourages illegal dumping of these materials in a very public place and at times other than when the event is scheduled. The appointment time they will be required to select during the process will assist us in managing the number of attendees, employees, and volunteers at any given time during the event so that the County and the contractor can continue to comply with the State mandates regarding COVID-19.
• If a resident arrives and does not have an appointment, they will not be granted access to the event.
• The pre-registration process will supply them with all the information they will need to participate like:
o The date of the event.
o The time of the event.
o What materials are accepted.
o What materials are not accepted
• They will be asked to click on a list of the items they anticipate bringing in so that our contractor has an idea what to expect.
• They will select an appointment time and they will be required to stick to that time.

Welcome To Coplay Borough

The Borough of Coplay is situated along the Lehigh River, about 5 miles north of Allentown. It is part of the 400 acres of land John Jacob Schreiber bought from the William Penn heirs in 1740. For a long time it was known as Schreibers. Later it was known as the Lehigh Valley, because of the Lehigh Valley Iron Furnaces that were located here. Lehigh Valley was then changed to Coplay. This name came from "Kolapechka". The son of the Indian chief, Paxanosa, who lived at the head of the creek near Schnecksville. The Borough of Coplay was formed out of a part of Whitehall Township in 1869 and was incorporated as a borough on April 7th, 1869.

Gradually Coplay changed from a farming area into an Industrial Community. The Thomas Iron Company started the change. They brought in workers and built homes for them. When the Iron Company was liquidated, other industries gradually came to Coplay; the Cement Mill, the Silk Mill, the Cigar Factory and Knitting Mill.

Coplay became a "melting pot" of many nationalities. The Pennsylvania Dutch and Germans, who were the agricultural element. Due to growth of the Iron Industry, immigrants from Ireland came. Then, in the early nineteen hundreds, the Cement Mills attracted immigrants from Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland and the Ukrainian Countries. It was thus that our town had its early beginnings.
