Trash & Recycling
The Township will send one bill annually for both trash and recycling. Residents will receive a bill early in February for the annual fee in the amount of $315. If you have billing questions, please call the township office (610) 646-7009.
The Township will provide one 96-gallon wheeled container for trash and one 64-gallon wheeled container for recycling, which are to be used as the PRIMARY containers
for trash/recycling collection. The carts are Township property and should be left at the property should you move.
The containers have wheels and handles and are easy to maneuver. The carts also have attached hinged lids to keep out pests, reduce odors, and prevent blowing litter.
The goal of the trash and recycling program is to increase recycling participation and reduce solid waste disposal costs.
To guarantee collection, place materials curbside the night before.
If your scheduled collection day falls on a holiday, your refuse will be picked up the next day.
Please call the township office to schedule pick-up of freon-containing items such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers. Doors must be removed from all appliances.
Bulk trash is picked up on the third Monday (Zone 1) or third Tuesday (Zone 2) of each month, depending on your scheduled pick-up day. To guarantee collection, place materials curbside the night before, along with the Township-provided toter cart. A maximum of two items per month are allowed from each household.
Televisions, Computer Components and Electronics are no longer permitted to be disposed of with household trash
, per State law effective January 24, 2013. Please see related E-Waste information on the Household Hazardous Waste page.
Bulk items include:
- Appliances with the doors removed (non-freon items)
- Bed frames
- Small sofas
