Recycling & Waste

Trash Service

In Willistown Township our residents hire their own trash providers. Any questions regarding trash and recycling pick-up should be directed to the appropriate trash hauler.

Curbside trash events will be at the discretion of the private trash providers. The Township does host annual drop off events and they will post information regarding these specific events as the information becomes available.

The Willistown has partnered with Retrievr(formerly Curb My Clutter) for residents to recycle materials. For a small convenience fee, residents will be able to recycle used clothing, electronic devices and more with a simple text message for porch pickup.
