Trash Collection

East Hopewell Township Board of Supervisors is pleased to announce that we have entered into a municipal waste contract with Republic Services of Pennsylvania, LLC for exclusive/voluntary trash collection. The contract will begin on January 1, 2010 and includes the following:

  • Collection of trash 1 time per week on Wednesday
  • Recycling 1 time per week on Wednesday
  • One bulk item per week on Wednesday (ex. –appliances, furniture, mattress)
  • Cost for residential customers for the year 2019will be $326.64 per year
  • Low Volume Option is available—Pay-per-bag or pay-per-tag cost is $6.33 per bag/tag
  • A 96 gallon mobile trash container will be provided by Republic Services at no extra charge
  • Mobile recycle bins will be provided by and delivered by Republic Services
In previous years, a bulk trash collection event was held in April. As the new agreement allows residents to put out a large trash item every Wednesday, the bulk trash collection day will no longer be offered. We look forward to working with Republic Services and providing recycling and trash collection at a lower cost. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
