When should I put my trash out?

Containers should be placed at the curb in front of your property no later than 6:00 a.m. on the day of collection but no earlier than 5:00 p.m. on the day preceding the collection. Once the truck passes your house it will not return. Trash should be stored in watertight containers, which have handles and loose fitting lids. Do not place trash and garbage in paper bags, card-board boxes or flimsy plastic bags.

What happens when trash is strewn on the streets?

If the trash collectors spill trash, they will pick it up. If an improper container breaks or animals tear up the trash, it is the property owner's responsibility for clean up.

Why was my trash or recycling red-tagged and not picked-up?

There are two possible reasons:

  1. If you put out more than 4 containers, containers larger than 35 gallons or weighing more than 50 pounds, none of your trash will be collected.
  1. If your trash or recycling contains unacceptable items; such as trash in your recycling or recycling in your trash, refuse resulting from the repair, excavation or construction of buildings, such as sand, earth, lumber brick, stone, mortar, plaster, roofing materials, plumbing fixtures, carpet, ect., or tires, auto parts, hazardous waste, household appliances, it will not be collected. The Borough collects household appliances on the 3rd Wednesday of the month April through September. For hazardous waste info call Montgomery County Household Hazardous Waste Program (610) 278-3618. Homeowners must dispose of other items on their own.

When is my yard waste collected?

Yard waste will be collected every Wednesday and there is no need to call the Borough. Your yard waste collection is in addition to your regular trash and recycling pick-ups. If a holiday or a snow storm falls on a Wednesday your collection will be the following week.
