J.P. Mascaro & Sons is now also collecting all recyclables on Wednesdays. Recycling should be placed at the curb no earlier than 8:00 pm Tuesday evening and no later than 7:00 am Wednesday morning.  Our recycling collection is now single-stream, which means that materials are collected all together in one container, with no sorting required by residents.  So cans and bottles can be recycled together with newspaper, cardboard, etc. 

For all trash and recycling, please place on your curb after 8pm the day prior to collection, and remove your receptacle no later than midnight of the day of collection.

Bags should be placed at the curb no earlier than 8:00 pm Monday evening. The leaf vacuum is used on Saturdays in the fall to pick up leaves that have fallen from trees along the curb lines.

Acceptable Yard Waste: leaves, brush, grass, twigs, and branches. Branches must be bundled and tied not exceeding 3" in diameter and 4' in length. No more than 6 bundles of branches per residence per week will be picked up. The Borough does not offer services for full tree pickup. You must contact a private contractor.

Snow Plowing

During the winter season, the Streets Department plows streets throughout the Borough. If a snow emergency has been declared, the Streets department will plow each side of the street alternately each day. On even days, please park your vehicle on the even side of the road, and on odd days, please park your vehicle on the odd side of the road. This will allow the snow plow personnel to plow the free side of the road. It is recommended that you shovel your driveway and park there to decrease the number of vehicles on the street, as it become difficult to find parking during this season.

Christmas Tree Pickup

In January and February, the Streets Department will pick up Christmas trees on Tuesdays. Trees should be placed at the curb for pickup.

Television Disposal

The PA Covered Device Recycling Act requires that consumers not dispose of covered devices such as computers, laptops, monitors and televisions with their trash as trash haulers will no longer be able to take covered devices. All residents must now responsibly recycle electronic equipment as they can no longer be thrown in landfills.

Best Buy will accept computers and TVs 32" and under for free recycling when dropped off at their store.

Salvation Army Thrift Store in Montgomeryville accepts working TVs of any size and shape as well as working computers and electronics. They are located at 671 Bethlehem Pike, Montgomeryville, PA 18936. Phone: 215-631-1570.
