Additional information regarding disposal of construction/demolition waste and in-home medical waste can also be found on their website.
The Township also at times provides a special event in the fall when we host a shredding event. Please refer to the calendar for the date and to the current newsletter for additional information/details.

CFL Light Bulbs:
PPL has discontinued the RecyclePak which allowed residents to bring your CFL light bulbs to the Township office for recycling. We are NO longer able to participate in the program. Lowes & Home Depots have drop off boxes in many of their locations. We ask that you contact them and continue to recycle these type of bulbs. Regular bulbs should be placed in the trash. It is best if you wrap them in newspaper if possible.

Prescription Drugs:
Safe Medication Disposal box can be found at the following locations below. Residents may dispose of expired and unused prescription drugs and over the counter medications. These boxes are secure and will be emptied as needed by the police department who will make sure the drugs are disposed of in the proper way.
Any prescription medications and over the counter medications will be accepted. Illegal drugs, needles, lotions or liquids, inhalers, aerosol cans, thermometers and hydrogen peroxide will not be accepted. Labels should be removed from all prescription bottles before bringing them in.

The boxes are not designed for intravenous solutions, injectables and needles (contact LCSWMA for proper disposal). Detectives from the county drug task force empties the boxes monthly.  Local boxes can be found at:
