Trash & Recycling

Weekly Collections


Waste and recyclable materials will be collected on Tuesdays. If a collection day falls on a holiday, collection will be made the next day. Have recyclables and waste at the curb by 6 a.m. of the collection day. West Whiteland Township strongly recommends that you put all trash/recycling curbside the night before. This will avoid "missed collections" due to the trucks driving by your home at times to which you are unaccustomed. Trash Bags must be securely tied or sealed before being placed at the curb.

Please do not place trash bags and recycling containers in the street for any reason!

Broken mirrors or non-recycling glass should be placed in a cardboard box and clearly labeled “Broken Glass” for the trash hauler to pick up.

Disposal Fee


In 2015 the Chester County Solid Waste Authority implemented an $8 additional disposal fee for each mattress and box spring taken to the landfill. These items are difficult to compress and take up a lot of space. We strongly encourage residents to have the company that sells you a new mattress and box spring take your old one for recycling.

Dispose Lists


Please take a look at the list below before discarding items in the trash. Many of these items can be repurposed, reducing the waste for your weekly collection and in our landfills. For items that cannot be recycled, information is given on how to dispose of this waste responsibly and safely.
