Trash and recycling collection

A. J. Blosenski, Inc. provides trash and recycling collection service in accordance with the Refuse and Recycling Contract.  The contract provides for weekly collection of three 32-gallon containers or bags of household waste, recyclable items, and monthly pick up of a bulk item. The quarterly fee for 2017 is $70.23 and is billed quarterly by A. J. Blosenski, Inc. Curbside leaf collection is scheduled each spring and fall (dates listed below and on the calendar).  The information sheet provides more information about single stream recycling.



East Bradford has an agreement with West Bradford Township that allows East Bradford residents to use their compost site.  A cardboard drop off is located at the Township building (666 Copeland School Road, West Chester, PA) in the back parking lot (enclosed dumpster).  The dumpster is emptied and replaced on Mondays and Fridays (so there is a window of times on these days when drop off is not available).



One item is allowed on the first pick-up of the month. This item could be a sofa, carpet, chair, table, etc. and you do not need to call and schedule a pick-up for these items. Mattresses and box springs must be recycled and require a special pick-up for a fee (A. J. Blosenski at (610) 942-2707).  You might also be able to recycle them when you purchase a new mattress and box spring. Electronics cannot be placed curbside for bulk pick-up and should be recycled, see info below.
