Yard Waste Pickup
The Borough of Phoenixville is happy to announce a new yard waste collection program. We have been awarded grant money by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection in recognition of our efforts and commitment to recycling. Borough Council approved using these grant funds for the purchase of a new yard waste truck and 720 65-gallon yard waste toters.
These new toters are the same size and shape of your current toters, but have a brown lid instead of a gray (trash) or green (recycles only) lid. These toters will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis and only one toter will be given out per household. If you do not get a yard waste toter, please continue to use biodegradable paper bags.
As a reminder, each household is entitled to three (3) cubic yards of these products per year at no cost. The yard waste collection program runs from April to December and will be done every other week beginning the week of April
We are proud to be recognized for the efforts of our Sanitation Department to recycle this green waste into products that can be reused to enrich our soil, help retain moisture and reduce the need for chemical fertilizers.
Yard Waste Pickup will occur starting March 30, 2021 and will go until the end of October.
Yard Waste will be collected every other week on your normal trash pickup day, unless otherwise noted via an alert on our website homepage and/or social media pages.
Yard Waste Toter Program:
These new Yard Waste toters are granted to us from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection as part of the 902 Recycling Grant. These toters are free of charge, but only one is permitted per household.
These toters are special, because they are for YARD WASTE ONLY. No trash is allowed in these receptacles.
The Borough is currently out of yard waste toters. When more become available, the application will be re-released.
Acceptable yard waste includes:
- grass clippings
- small branches
