Nether Providence Township offers curb-side and drop-off recycling services as well as leaf pickup and mulch delivery. General trash pick up is performed through private services.
Sanitary Sewer Backup
In the event of a sanitary sewer backup at your property, please call the Township Office first. The administration office hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Monday through Friday. After those hours, call 911 and a township highway crew will be dispatched to check the line. Although the Township conscientiously maintains its sewer system, periodic backups into homes or businesses inevitably occur. In most cases, the Township’s responsibility ends when the line is cleared and the problem causing the blockage has been addressed. Responsibility for cleanup and damage to the premises rests with the resident. The Township will not reimburse a property owner for plumbing fees. Most homeowners insurance policies have optional riders for sewer backups that, if purchased will provide coverage.
