General Information

Curbside Trash & Recycling Collection

Shrewsbury Township mandates curbside trash & recycling collection for all properties within the Township.  All properties must use the services provided by its contractor hauler, currently Penn Waste; only exception is commercial and industrial properties that utilize private dumpster service.

The current three (3) year contract expires June 30, 2017.  The Board of Supervisors are considering a two (2) year extension of that contract, at one (1) year increments.  The additional two (2) years were included in the 2014 contract award.

There are two (2) services available.  The first is weekly collection, which includes up to four (4) 32-gallon trash containers, unlimited recycling, and one (1) large (bulky) trash item.  The second option is “per bag,” which includes 26 bags for the year and unlimited curbside recycling.  Large (bulky) trash items can be collected under this program, but it requires the use of one (1) trash bag (attached to the item).

For billing questions, to sign up for new service, or to change you current level of service, call Penn Waste at 717-767-4456.
