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 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 carts are Township property and should be left at the property should you move.
Since January 6, 2014, A.J. Blosenski has been using automated trucks to collect residential solid waste in the Township. Disposal of solid waste is LIMITED to ONE (1) 96-gallon trash Toter per week. There is NO LIMIT to the amount of recyclable material disposed of on a weekly basis.
Larger households in the Township who require larger recycling Toters are asked to contact the Township at 610-458-2318. There is no change in the yard waste portion of the program. The goal of the program change is to encourage recycling and control program costs into the future.
To guarantee collection, place materials curbside the night before.
If your scheduled collection day falls on a holiday, your trash and recycling will be picked up the next day.
Please call the township office (610) 458-9400 to schedule pick-up of freon-containing items such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers. Doors must be removed from all appliances.
