Yard Waste Collection Update & Information – July 23, 2021

J.P. Mascaro & Sons continues to experience delayed collections for trash, recycling and yard waste due to the nationwide labor shortage/economic conditions. Please note that the Administration continues to work and press J.P. Mascaro to resolve the issues as soon as possible.

Today, Friday, July 23rd, Mascaro has 2 yard waste trucks in the Township to collect in the areas that were missed yesterday.

To provide an alternative option for YARD WASTE ONLY, J.P. Mascaro will place a truck and attendant in the parking lot at 1500 Desire Avenue (in front of the old courthouse) to accept yard waste from Lower Southampton Township residents on certain days.

This is not a replacement of the services that JP Mascaro is to provide the Township.  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.

YARD WASTE DROP OFF HOURS

Saturday, July 24th – 8:30 AM to 4 PM

Monday, July 26th – 8:30 AM to 4 PM

PLEASE NOTE:  Curb side collection of yard waste will remain on Thursdays for all Township residents. Therefore, please leave all yard waste at the curb for collection. The drop off service is only an alternative should residents wish to dispose of yard waste before your next scheduled yard waste collection. 

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

***  This is not a drop-off for commercial landscaping businesses.

YARD WASTE UPDATE – JULY 22, 2021

Per JP Mascaro:  There will be 3 yard waste trucks in the Township today in addition to the stationary yard waste truck at the Township building. Mascaro is also sending 2 recycling trucks and 1 trash truck to collect the areas that were missed yesterday.

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.
