This weekend, Lower Merion Township residents can get rid of refuse, recycling, household appliances and more during the township's free fall cleanup, according to a township news release.
Between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, items can be dropped off at the township's public works complex, located at 1300 Woodbine Avenue in Penn Valley, where township staff will assist in unloading.
The full township release is below:
On Saturday and Sunday, October 6th and 7th, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., residents are invited to participate in the Township's annual free Fall Cleanup Weekend.
This opportunity to dispose of unwanted refuse and recyclables, household appliances, textiles, plastic, glass, newsprint, aluminum and plain old trash will take place at the Koegel Public Works Complex, N. 1300 Woodbine Avenue, in Penn Valley.
"Township crews will be on hand to help residents unload," stated Don Cannon, Director of Public Works. "We simply ask that participants provide proof of residency, such as a driver's license, at the time they check in." Non-profit organizations will also have representatives on hand to collect unwanted computers, bicycles, furniture, clothing, and other items that can benefit those less fortunate.
The recycling drop-off center is also open year-round, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at the Complex. Residents who are unable to attend the Fall Cleanup Weekend can take refuse to the Public Works Complex throughout the year and are only charged four cents per pound (with a minimum charge of 80 cents.) Call (610) 667-1952 for more information.
Please note that no household hazardous waste will be accepted at the Fall Cleanup Weekend. The Township will host a Montgomery County Household Hazardous Waste Collection on Saturday, October 20th from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Koegel Public Works Complex.
