YARD WASTE UPDATE – JULY 20, 2021

JULY 21 UPDATE: The stationary yard waste truck at the Township building is solely for convenience purposes, not a replacement of the services that JP Mascaro provides.  This does not release them of their obligation to pick up yard waste.  This service has also recently been done at Northampton and Upper Southampton Townships for their residents.

JP MASCARO will be placing a YARD WASTE TRUCK in the Township parking lot in front of the old district courthouse building to accept YARD WASTE ONLY from Lower Southampton households.  Per JP MASCARO COLLECTION  TIMES will be:

Thursday, July 22nd – 8:30 AM to 4 PM

Saturday, July 24th – 8:30 AM to 4 PM

Monday, July 26th – 8:30 AM to 4 PM

If you are able, please try to help out your elderly or sick neighbors on your block.  Please drive at a safe rate of speed when entering the parking lot since the township receives a lot of resident activity walking back and forth to their vehicles.

THIS IS OPTIONAL & TEMPORARY FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF THOSE THAT WISH TO DISPOSE OF THEIR YARD WASTE AFTER WEEKS OF NO COLLECTION.  THIS IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO OUR ISSUES WITH MASCARO.

Please note, this is not a drop off for commercial landscaping businesses.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation.

June 30, 2021 Refuse Collection Update from JP Mascaro

Per JP Mascaro, most trash routes will not be finished today. Mascaro will collect the remainder of the trash & recycling on Thursday.
