March 17, 2020 - Upper Uwchlan Township Operations Update


If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, call your healthcare provider. If you do not have a healthcare provider, call the Chester County Health Department at 610-344-6225.


Upper Uwchlan Township Operations

  • The Upper Uwchlan Township office remains CLOSED to the public. However, residents are reminded that they may conduct business with the Township remotely. View the staff directory for telephone numbers and email addresses. 
  • Parks - Except Upland Farms, all parks are closed. At Upland, the portable bathroom will not be available. 
  • 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.  
  • Police services have not been diminished or interrupted. Read a statement from the UUTPD here.
