What do I do with old refrigerators?
Please call a certified freon remover to have freon drained prior to disposal. Visit www.chestercountyswa.org for additional information.
What do I do with old Paint?
The trash hauler will not take cans of paint so you can mix kitty litter or old shredded newspaper with the wet paint, stir it and let it sit until paint is absorbed by material. Dump the material in a plastic bag, seal it and place in trash can. Make sure all lids are off so trash hauler can see that there is no wet paint.

New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Ifyour pick-up falls on one of these holidays, your trash will be picked up the next day.
Where do I get a new recycling bin?
Where can I pay the sewer/trash bill?
You may mail it to P.O. Box 1540 Exton PA 19341; make payment in person at our office; or put payment in our “drop off box” in front of our building.
How are we billed for Sewer and Trash?
You are billed quarterly in arrears for sewer and/or trash services. One bill is now mailed in April with four payment tickets, one to be paid at the end of each quarter. New residents are mailed pro-rated bills based on their settlement dates after moving in. Please call our office at 610-363-9450 with any question specific to your account.
New recycling containers are available for $10/each at the Township building.
When in Doubt, Throw it Out !
    Scrap metal, pieces of wood, yard waste and children's toys are just a few of the items that "contaminate" the recyclables.  Scrap metal may be taken to a scrap dealer, yard waste should be composted and reusable children's toys may be donated or thrown away if broken.  DO NOT put them in the recycling bins.
    Plastic bags present another problem.  Recyclables should never be put in plastic bags.  Plastic bags are not recyclable in curbside programs.  Plastic shopping bags can be returned to your local grocery store and plastic trash bags should be used for trash only, not recyclables.
Yard Waste ?
Leaves- 5 bags = 1 bulk Item. Small branches must be tied into manageable sized bundles no larger than 4in in diameter & 4ft in length. 5 bundles = 1 bulk item. Tree Trunks & Large Branches will not be taken.
