Trash and recycling collection
CHANGES IN THE RECYCLING INDUSTRY
Recent changes overseas are beginning to impact your residents and what they can put in their recycling bin. The articles listed below explain what’s going on with Pennsylvania’s recycling markets:
RESIDENTIAL SERVICE & RATES
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 2019 is $64.90 (no change from 2018) and is billed quarterly by A. J. Blosenski, Inc. The Trash and Recycling Information Sheet provides more information about trash collection and recycling.
A trash and recycling certification is required when a property sells. Please contact Shelby at A. J. Blosenski to request a certification – 610-942-2707. The cost is $25.
BRUSH COMPOSTING AND CARDBOARD DROP OFF
East Bradford has an agreement with West Bradford Township that allows East Bradford residents to use their compost site, for yard waste, brush, leaves and grass clippings. Please see the West Bradford website for more information.
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). Please flatten all boxes as this allows for more cardboard to be placed in the dumpster.
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.
BUSINESS / COMMERCIAL / INDUSTRIAL RECYCLING AND REFUSE COLLECTION
All businesses and institutions within East Bradford Township are required to recycle. It is mandatory to separate and have collected the following: newspaper, glass, aluminum, steel and bimetallic cans, plastics and leaf waste, in addition to high-grade office paper and corrugated paper. Collection of the materials to be recycled and municipal waste shall be made periodically by the hauler chosen by the business and institution. Yearly reports of items recycled are to be provided to Chester County and East Bradford Township showing the items recycled and the weights of those items. (See Code of the Township of East Bradford, Chapter 91 Solid Waste)
