Yard Waste Drop-Off Reopening on First Saturday of Month Only

In late December 2019, the Board of Commissioners closed the yard waste disposal facility located at the Public Works garage.  The closure was necessitated due to several factors including: abuse of the service by some residents and professional landscapers, significantly increasing disposal costs, the closure of a facility that previously accepted yard waste, strain on Public Works employees, safety of the public and potential liability issues.

Going forward, the Township has decided to offer expanded curbside yard waste pickups on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. You must call to arrange a pickup by calling the Township Building at 610-566-4516.  Please schedule early as availability may be limited.   In addition, the yard waste disposal facility at the Public Works garage will now be open on the first Saturday of the month from 8 AM to noon for yard waste drop-offs. Anyone using the drop-off service will need to show ID or other proof of Nether Providence residency.  Commercial yard waste is strictly prohibited.

Yard waste that is eligible for pick-up includes leaves in biodegradable bags (NO PLASTIC BAGS) and bundled sticks.  Grass clippings and weeds are not eligible for pick-up.  Bundled sticks must be 4″ in diameter or less and no longer than 5′ and must be bundled together with twine.  All items must be placed at the edge of your property at the edge of the street. The employees will not come onto your property to pick up the yard waste.
