Recycling Costs Increase
For years the Township was able to operate the Recycling Center at no cost to taxpayers. That will change in 2014 adding $10,000 unanticipated expense to the Township budget which may force the Township to remove the containers. The Supervisors will be evaluating the service during 2015 budget review.
Help reduce the expense by taking advantage of recycling services built into the cost of your trash collection and offered by your trash hauler, which is required by law.
For example, Republic Services, offers a Recycle Bank Program which pays reward points to customers based on the volume they recycle. You are able to put ALL recycling into one container. The more you recycle, the more points you earn for discounts and specials at your favorite local shops and restaurants.
Dumpsters for Newsprint & Paper Products
The East Rockhill Township Resident Recycling Drop-off Center located at 1622 N. Ridge Road is home to a paper and cardboard dumpster. We are able to recycle:
- junk mail
- office paper
- fax paper
- shredded paper
You can also recycle your unwanted paper at the green and yellow “Paper Retriever” dumpsters at churches, schools, and non-profit organizations throughout the community.
Recycling at any of these dumpsters benefits East Rockhill tax payers by increasing our recycling quantities reported to DEP and contributing to the calculation of our recycling performance-based grant awards.

The East Rockhill Township Resident Rycycling Drop-off Center is home to a Dumpster for Glass and Plastic Residential Recycling Materials. We are able to accept:
- Glass means products
- Aluminum, steel and bi-metal cans

Single Hauler Trash District
The trash district, Pines at Pennridge I & II and Cedarbrook Crossing, receives trash service through a township-bid single hauler contract. The current contract is with Republic Services (Allied Waste) and includes weekly collection of trash and recycling and optional Christmas tree collection and monthly yard waste collection (pay per bag). Allied Waste can be contacted at 215-723-0400.
Those not residing in the trash district will need to arrange for trash pick-up with a private hauler. Trash haulers in East Rockhill Township must provide both trash and comingled recycling collection as part of the normal collection fee. They also must provide at least one collection each of leaves and garden materials, tree trimmings, and Christmas trees.
The following are known trash haulers within the township. A listing here does not imply an endorsement by East Rockhill Township or that they are the only haulers available.
