Recycling & Waste Removal

Waste Removal / Trash

In order to protect the public health, safety and welfare of its taxpayers and residents, Concord Township requires by ordinance that all municipal wastes generated within its jurisdiction shall be disposed of at a facility designated by the county.

This service is not provided by the township.  Residents of Concord Township must arrange for trash pick-up with a township registered private hauler of their choice.

To verify if a hauler is registered with the township, contact the Township Office at 610-459-8911, ext. 113.

Visit the Waste Removal page for more information.



In compliance with Act 101, Pennsylvania’s Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act, private haulers registered in Concord Township are required to provide the curbside collection of recyclables at least twice a month.  Contact your private hauler for specific details concerning twice monthly collection. 

Concord Township organizes two township recycling days each year.  Held once in the spring and once in the fall, residents are encouraged to bring all types of household items for recycling.  (Note: Since the township is not permitted to collect hazardous waste, the two township recycling days are scheduled a week before county hazardous waste collection days.)

Recycling igloos are located at the township public works garage year-round.

Visit the Recycling page for more information.


Household Hazardous Waste

Concord Township is not permitted to collect hazardous waste.  Throughout the year, Delaware County organizes several Household Hazardous Waste Collection events.

See the Household Hazardous Waste page for more information.


Electronic Waste

Effective January 2013, state law prohibits electronic waste from entering the trash stream.  Electronic waste can be brought to the semi-annual township recycling days.

See the Electronic Waste page for more information.


Yard Waste / Grass Clippings

Concord Township encourages residents to recycle grass clippings.  Residents are also encouraged to create their own backyard compost pile or to bring yard waste (other than grass clippings) to the county’s compost farm.

Concord Township organizes a Lawn Debris Pick Up day in the spring and a Leaf Pick Up day in the fall.  Both pick up days require residents to sign up on the preceding township recycling day.

See the Yard Waste / Grass Clippings page for more information.
