What You Need to Know:
Township residents are allowed to contract their own trash and recycling service with the hauler of their choice.
Haulers are required to collect both trash and recycling from a residence, recycling must be collected at least bi-weekly on the same schedule as trash pickup.
Upper Nazareth Township requires that our residents utilize the Township’s green and yellow recycling carts
provided thanks to a Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection grant. All recyclables should be
placed inside the cart and there’s no need to sort them out separately, this method is known as single-stream recycling. These carts or toters are for recyclable materials only and cannot be used for trash. They are the property of Upper Nazareth Twp. and must stay with the house if you move.
