Pay As You Throw

West Whiteland Township has a “Pay As You Throw" (PAYT) program to encourage recycling which requires residents to purchase official Township trash bags in order for waste to be collected. Thanks to the cooperation of the residents, West Whiteland’s trash program can boast the following:
  • Lowest cost per resident, compared to other trash systems used by similar municipalities in the region
  • It is inherently fair; the more you use, the more you pay.
  • We have the most recyclable tonnage per resident.

Secure Your Trash Bags

Please tie or tape all bags before placing them at the curb. Even if you choose to put the Township bag in a container the bag needs to be tied or taped. Trash bags may be purchased for $2.50 per bag at many Township locations.
