Trash

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. 

 

To purchase an additional trash and/or recycling cart please complete a trash cart order form and return to the Borough of Conshohocken, or call 610-828-1092. Residents are responsible for managing and caring for Borough issued carts. If a resident moves, the cart (s) should remain at the house for use by the next resident.
