Welcome to Lower Providence Township.

 
Ice Storm Cleanup

Township crews are continuing to chip branches brought down in the February ice storm. Please be aware that the schedule has been delayed due to the heavy volume and weather.  Please leave the branches at the curb.   We appreciate your patience.  

Branches 4 inches in diameter or less can be chipped and should be left at the curbside.  Once the crew has completed a road, they will not be able to return for a second round.   Again, only branches can be accepted.  Homeowners will be responsible for disposal of other debris. Thank you for your cooperation.
