Upper Uwchlan Township Operations

  • The Upper Uwchlan Township office is open by appointment ONLY. Residents are encouraged to conduct business with the Township remotely. View the staff directory for telephone numbers and email addresses. 
  • Parks - See table above for details. Please observe social distancing at all times and heed park signage. No organized groups permitted without prior authorization. 
  • Trash & Recycling - At this time, there are no changes to trash and recycling pickup schedules. As always, be sure to put your Toters curbside the night before collection. The next yard waste pickup is scheduled for April 8. 
    • For the safety of the hauler personnel, all trash that is placed in your trash Toter must be secured in garbage bags. This will protect the personnel from needing to handle loose articles of trash. Unbagged trash will not be collected. 
    • Your single stream recyclables should still be placed loose in your recycling Toter. However, excess materials must be bagged or bound: Any recyclables that don’t fit in your Toter must be placed in paper bags. Cardboard boxes must be broken down and bound with twine.
  • Meetings and Events - All non-essential meetings have been cancelled through April 3, 2020. In an effort to minimize public exposure to COVID-19 and maintain social distancing, some essential meetings will now be held online in webinar format. View individual events on the Township Calendar for instructions on accessing meetings.  
    • The 2020 Upper Uwchlan Township Block Party has been postponed to a date to be determined.
    • The 2020 Junior Police Academy has been cancelled.
