Yard Waste Collection Program

Please note that you must  call the Township or sign up on the web site to schedule a pick-up. 

In January of 2008, East Norriton Township kicked-off a yard waste recycling program. The recycling program provides monthly curbside yard waste collection to single family households and select multifamily properties within the Township. During certain times of the year, the Township may increase the collection frequency to bi-monthly in order to better serve the residents of East Norriton Township. The yard waste recycling program is free to all of our residents.

East Norriton Township ordinance requires residents to separate yard waste, such as shrubbery, branches, limbs and other yard trimmings, from other garbage and prohibits trash haulers from collecting yard waste with regular garbage pick-up. The new yard waste recycling program will collect and recycle yard waste from single family households and multifamily properties with less than 3 units within the Township.

To participate in the program, residents must contact East Norriton Township at (610) 275-2800 Ext.111 or sign up on-line under Yard Waste Collection Registration. Residents must contact the Township no later than noon on the Friday prior to their monthly collection day. Yard waste will be collected on the 3rd Monday of each month. If the 3rd Monday is a Holiday, service will be provided on the next business day.

Up to two days prior to the scheduled collection day, residents may set out yard waste using 32 gallon trash cans or bundles. Since the yard waste will be recycled, residents cannot set out yard waste in plastic bags. Furthermore, residents cannot set-out dirt, rocks, stumps, weeds, grass, bamboo or leaves. Trash cans used to set out yard waste must be clearly marked as yard waste. For the safety of the collectors, each trash can or bundle cannot exceed 40 pounds. Furthermore, each bundle must be less than 2 feet in diameter and placed at the curb with the cut ends of the yard waste towards the street. Branches, limbs, or trunks cannot be more than 5 inches in diameter each. Yard waste properly containerized or bundled should be placed within 5 feet of the curb and in such a manner not to obstruct the road. Yard waste improperly set-out or co-mingled with unacceptable materials will not be collected. East Norriton Township will collect up to 2 cubic yards of yard waste, approximately ten 32 gallon trash cans or six bundles, per household on each scheduled collection day. For more information as to the yard waste recycling program please contact East Norriton Township at (610) 275-2800.
