Yard Waste Information*

Yard waste, brush and small tree branches will be collected curbside once a week during the Yard Waste Program. Grass clippings and leaves must be placed in containers or biodegradable paper bags. Please DO NOT use the BROWN REFUSE TOTER for Yard Waste. Please DO NOT use plastic bags. All yard waste is composted into a high grade mulch product. Yard waste must be placed at the curb the night before the scheduled collection day.

Brush and/or tree limbs must be placed in biodegradable paper bags or tied into bundles (with twine) not exceeding 5' in length and 50 pounds. Branches with a diameter greater than 5" will not be taken.

Please limit the amount of yard waste placed at the curbside to nine (9) containers, paper bags and/or bundles total.

If you have a significant amount of yard waste, you may drop it off at the Compost Site Facility on Camp Hill Road, hire a private contractor to dispose of it, or place the maximum weekly amount at the curb for the Township to collect it over a period of several weeks.

Any materials "tagged' by Public Works Personnel as unacceptable, exceeds item limit or weight limit, must be removed from the curbside and disposed of properly. Call the Public Works Department for options. ( 215) 643-1600 X 3233

For the disposal of dirt, sod, rocks, tree stumps, logs, root balls, wood chips, or branches exceeding 5" in diameter, please contact a private contractor.

Kitchen Organics Waste Information - Items you can add to your green yard waste containers*

Upper Dublin Township continues to look at a variety of programs from around the country to handle kitchen organic waste by diverting it from the waste stream and composting. Currently, the combination of costs and permit requirements may not allow for partial or full implementation of such a program.

Residents are advised that our current yard waste collection program has some flexibility and opportunity to reduce waste and return valuable nutrients to the environment safely.

The following is a list of items that you most likely regularly produce within your household that can be placed in your green yard waste containers:
• Fruit & vegetable scraps
• Crushed egg shells
• Coffee grounds
• Used tea bags
• Stale baked goods, like crackers & bread
• Corn husks
• Crumbs swept off of counters & floors
• Old herbs & spices
• Pizza crusts
• Tooth picks
• Paper bags (ripped or shredded)
• Cardboard boxes (ripped or cut into small pieces - nothing with a wax coating)
• Green waste

To keep your green yard waste container clean, we suggest wrapping your food waste in newspaper.

With specific questions, please call the Township Manager's office at (215) 643-1600 x3220.
