Trash

Trash Collection Schedule and Information

First Precinct: Tuesday and Friday

Second Precinct: Monday and Thursday

A reminder to all residents that the trash ordinance prohibits placing trash out before 6:00 pm the night before your scheduled day, and to remove your cans from township streets at the end of your scheduled day. All residents are asked to comply with this request in order to help keep "our" township clean.

During inclement weather, when putting out cardboard boxes with your trash please make sure they are in your trashcans. The boxes become weak and break because of the precipitation and the trash falls out. We thank you very much for your cooperation!

How to Identify HHW

Typically, item labels that contain the words: HAZARDOUS-DANGER-WARNING-POISONOUS and TOXIC indicate items that contain hazardous material.

Typical HHW include:

  • Oil-based paint (Not Latex Paint *see below*)
  • Paint thinner
  • Antifreeze
  • Varnish
  • Weed killer
  • Pesticides or Fungicides
  • Gas or Kerosene
  • Heating / Motor Oil
  • Items containing Mercury
  • Cell phones
  • Ni-Cad, lithium, rechargeable & lead acid batteries

NEVER DISPOSE OF HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE WITH YOUR REGULAR TRASH AS THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE TRASH TRUCK AND HARM TO THE WORKERS.

*Latex Paint is not hazardous and therefor will not be accepted at the collection events by Delaware County. Download Flyer from Delaware County PA on proper Latex Paint disposal
