  Yard Waste
 

Yard waste is collected each Wednesday year-round.  Yard waste, leaves and lawn clippings should be placed in open-top containers or compostable paper bags (available at most home stores).  Plastic bags may not be used. Branches should be cut to 3-feet in length, bundled with twine weighing no more than 40 lbs. or placed loose branches in open container (no higher than top of container). Branches larger than 3" in diameter cannot be collected.

Vacuum leaf collection is offered at an additional cost. Dates for 2016 will be announced in the fall. Call 1-800-432-1616 for details.

   
  Single-Stream Recycling
  While under Township Ordinance, residents and businesses are required to separate recycling material from their trash for separate collection, items to be recycled can all be placed together in the same container. Recyclables are collected once a week on your designated recycling day. Click here to see what can be recycled.
   
  Why is recycling important to theTownship?
  Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. The Township not only wants to do the right thing, but is also awarded Recycling Performance Grants each year based on the tons of waste our residents and businesses keep out of landfills.  This incentive helps pay for Township activities and is an easy way for residents to give back to the community.  The more you recycle the larger the award the Township gets from the State.
   
 

Pennsylvania made recycling the law in July 1988 with Act 101, the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act, making Pennsylvania the largest state in the nation to require recycling. Curbside recycling is mandatory in municipalities with populations greater than 5,000, but many smaller communities have started programs voluntarily. Now, over 1,600 communities in PA are recycling!
