Montgomery Township

Recycling Guidelines

Montgomery Township residents must make arrangements for recycling with the hauler of their choice. See below for a list of haulers that operate in the township. Those contractors may provide a recycling container as part of your service contract; if not, recycling bins are available for a nominal cost of $10 at the Township Building, 1001 Stump Road, Montgomeryville.

Though each hauler has its own instructions explaining what materials to recycle and how to sort them, the hauler you select should collect aluminum, steel, and bimetal cans, glass, number 1 and 2 plastics, newspapers, and magazines. Haulers may pick up other materials in addition to these. Please contact your hauler with any questions about recycling materials, material sorting, and collection schedules.

The township provides a cardboard recycling drop-off bin at the Township Building on Stump Rd. The bin is open from sunrise to sunset and accepts materials from Township residents only, not from businesses. Please break down boxes and place them in the recycling container. Do not leave boxes on the ground. Do not put “waxy” cardboard in this recycling bin.

If you wish to recycle a material that is not included in regular recycling collection, you can search for a drop-off.

Leaf and Yard Waste Collection

Montgomery Township has both a monthly leaf and yard waste drop-off collection and two curbside pick-up collections annually for Township Residents.

Leaf waste is defined as leaves, garden residues shrubbery and tree trimmings, and similar material, but does not include grass clippings.

Yard waste is defined as twigs, shrub trimmings, small branches, and like vegetative matter.

All materials for both the drop-off and the curbside pick-up must be placed in brown paper biodegradable leaf bags.    No exceptions!

Leaf & Yard Waste Curbside Pick-up:  There are two curbside pick-ups, one in the spring and one in the fall.  Please have all of the leaf & yard waste placed in paper biodegradable leaf bags and out by the curb on the night before the pick-up.
Leaf & Yard Waste Monthly Drop-Off Collection:  Every month on the third Saturday of the month.  The collection takes place at the William F. Maule Park at Windlestrae off of Kenas Road from 8AM-Noon.  Drop-offs are prohibited outside of this collection.
Here are the 2016 Leaf and Yard Waste Monthly Drop-Off Collection Dates:

If you have any questions about leaf and yard waste collections, please contact the Township at 215-393-6900.
