From April 1st through December 15th, yard waste is picked up the day after your scheduled trash collection day.
During this time period, unlimited yard waste will be collected and taken to a composting facility the day after your trash and recycling day.
In addition to using plastic or metal trashcans, you may use biodegradable, 30-gallon paper bags. Cans or bags must not weigh more than 50 pounds when full. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected during this period.
If your trash collection day is Monday, then it’ll be picked up Tuesday, and so on. Tree branches and shrubbery must be no more than three inches in diameter and no more than 36 inches long.
They must be bundled or tied and put in biodegradable bags. Branches or shrubbery cannot extend over the top of the can.
Biodegradable bags can be purchased at the administration building, 55 Township Road, Richboro, for 40 cents each or in bundles of 50 for $20.
