Yard Waste & Leaf Collection

Disposal Information

Effective August 1, 2015, with the 2015-2018 Household Refuse and Recycling Contract, Upper Uwchlan Township added nineteen (19) yard waste and leaf collection dates, for a total of thirty-six (36) curbside collections annually.  These collections take place on Wednesdays; the dates are listed below.

Place leaves, yard waste, and grass clippings in biodegradable bags or in open containers (no lids) for disposal; 
DO NOT use plastic bags as these collections are composted.   Tree limbs (no larger than 3" diameter x 3' long) 
must be bundled with string/twine. 

Biodegradable bags / open containers that are filled with dirt or mulch will not be collected as they may be too heavy to lift or break during lifting.  The homeowner can dispose of mulch in the Township compost dumpster or pay for a special collection by the Hauler.  Disposal of dirt requires the homeowner to pay for a special collection by the Hauler.

To guarantee collection, place materials curbside the night before.

Biodegradable bags (5-pack for $2.50) are available for purchase at the Township Office, 140 Pottstown Pike,
Chester Springs, PA 19425

DO NOT use plastic bags. Leaf and yard waste debris in plastic bags will not be collected. 
If you have yard waste, leaves, etc. for disposal and cannot wait for curbside collection, a dumpster for compostable materials only is available at the Public Works facility located at 132 Oscar Way, Chester Springs, 19425.  DO NOT use plastic bags.
Do not leave excess materials outside of the dumpster.
