Township Trash & Recycling Collection
The township contracts for the collection of refuse and recycling material for East Caln Township. Every single family home is provided with a waste toter for refuse material. Recycling bins are available at the township building for $13.

All refuse, except for bulk refuse, must be placed in the toter at curbside by 5:00 am on the designated trash day. Pick-up days are Mondays and Thursdays. Bulk refuse is the third Thursday of the month and recycling is on Thursdays.

Trash is not picked up on holidays, it is collected the next day and the rest of the week shifts. For example, if the holiday is Monday, trash is collected on Tuesday and Friday that week. If the holiday is Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, the trash will be picked up on Friday. Monday’s collection is not affected.
