Excess Refuse

Photo of Refuse TruckExcess trash is collected on your regular trash day. The trash must be normal refuse, not cardboard, yard waste or large items. It must be placed in regular, plastic, 30-gallon trash bags near your toter. Township trash stickers must be placed on each bag of excess trash and the stickers must be visible from the road. Stickers may not be placed on cardboard boxes, as they are recyclable material. The stickers cost $2.50 each. They may be purchased from the Township by mail or in person during regular business hours. There is no limit to the number of 30-gallon bags of excess trash you may put out for collection at one time, provided that each bag has a sticker and the contents are normal excess refuse, not recyclables, yard waste or large items.

Excess trash may also be dropped off at the Lanchester Landfill in Honey Brook for a fee. If brought to the landfill in an open truck, the bags should be covered. For fee schedule and further information, the phone number at the Lanchester Landfill is 610-273-3771. Information can also be obtained here.

Remember to recycle and reduce waste, and it will not be necessary to purchase stickers!
