Trash and Recycling

Trash Information

Trash pick-up and recycling is handled through private waste haulers. Residents are responsible for contacting their own waste hauler and making the necessary arrangements for the collection of trash and recyclables.

And of course for a future healthy planet earth, always remember to recycle whatever you can!

Electronics Recycling

Upper Saucon Township typically hosts two electronics recycling events per year – in  the spring and fall. In between events, you may drop off the items via one of two local vendors. One of our partners – Responsible Recycling Services – utilizes some local businesses to serve as drop-off points for electronics. You may find that list here. Additionally, there is another local vendor, AERC – located off Lehigh street off I-78 – who has a Public Drop-Off Day every month. You may find information on those services here.
