Recycling

Regular household trash, recycling and yard waste collection is a service provided to Conshohocken Borough residents and is included in resident taxes. Service set-up is not required for new residents. Residents are required to utilize approved trash and recycling carts only. Acceptable carts must include two (3) wheels, a metal lift bar, and an attached lid. Unapproved containers will be tagged for no future pickups until compliant.
