Yard & Leaf Waste

 In response to PA Department of Environmental Protection regulations concerning the disposal of yard and leaf waste, Limerick Township has adopted the following regulations to comply with the new State laws. The program began in October 2008 and is focused on decreasing disposal and encouraging recycling of yard and leaf waste.

All yard and leaf waste, whether curbside pick-up or brought to the Township collection site, must be placed in biodegradable bags which will be available for purchase at local home goods retail stores or the Limerick Township Building. No waste will be accepted which is not bagged appropriately.
 

Curb Side


Curb side collection of yard and leaf waste will be handled by the individual waste haulers operating within the Township. Four special collections per year are mandated for the months of May, October, November, and December. 
 
If you have not received information from your trash hauler on when they will be collecting yard and leaf waste please contact them to inquire about their specific collection times or...
