Hilltown Township has an agreement with Britton Industries, located at 4108 Bethlehem Pike, Telford, Pa., to accept all residents of Hilltown (not commercial) yard waste. This agreement is for the first and third Saturday of each month, between the hours of 7:00 Am and 1:00 Pm for drop off. (Please note that commercial vehicles and contractors, whether they are a resident of Hilltown Township or operate a business within Hilltown Township, will be charged normal tipping rates).
It is also important to note that burning of leaves is prohibited by The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, by DEP. A solution would be Composting. Composting produces a valuable soil additive which can increase plant growth while also diverting materials otherwise sent to landfills for disposal. Mulching of leaves, also adds nutrients, directly to the soil up decomposition.
In closing, Hilltown Township will be discontinuing leaf collection effective immediately. For any questions regarding this change, please feel free to contact the Hilltown Township office (215) 453-6000.
