Upper Uwchlan Township Operations

  • The Upper Uwchlan Township office is open to the public. Out of an abundance of caution, and with consideration for those who may be immunocompromised, all our staff will wear a mask when interacting with members of the public, and we are asking our visitors to mask inside the office as well. We still welcome you to conduct business with the Township remotely. View the staff directory for telephone numbers and email addresses. 
  • Parks - See table above for details. Please observe social distancing at all times and heed park signage. No organized groups permitted without prior authorization. 
  • Trash & Recycling - At this time, there are no changes to trash and recycling pickup schedules. As always, be sure to put your Toters curbside the night before collection
    • For the safety of the hauler personnel, all trash that is placed in your trash Toter must be secured in garbage bags. This will protect the personnel from needing to handle loose articles of trash. Unbagged trash will not be collected. 
    • Your single stream recyclables should still be placed loose in your recycling Toter. However, excess materials must be bagged or bound: Any recyclables that don’t fit in your Toter must be placed in paper bags. Cardboard boxes must be broken down and bound with twine.
  • Meetings and Events - In person public meetings have resumed. Masks are required of all attendees at public meetings. Non-essential meetings have been cancelled. View individual events on the Township Calendar.  
    • The 2021 Block Party was cancelled.
    • The 2020 Upper Uwchlan Township Block Party was cancelled.
    • The 2020 Junior Police Academy was cancelled. 
  • Police services have not been diminished or interrupted. Read a statement from the UUTPD here.
