Pick up and Drop-off Programs

Recycling and Trash haulers that service Hatfield Township can be found here

Cardboard and Yard Waste Drop-Off

***Third Saturday of every month from 8:00am - 12:00pm***
Because most trash haulers will not collect corrugated cardboard with regular recycling, Hatfield Township offers a monthly drop-off at the Hatfield Township Public Works Building: 2590 Unionville Pike.

Residents may also drop off moderate portions of yard waste, such as leaves, garden residue, and tree branches (small twigs) monthly as well. Biodegradable brown paper bags are available at home improvement or grocery stores. Hatfield Township cannot accept grass clippings at this time.

Residents are limited to two trips of branches per Saturday.


Christmas Tree Drop-Off

After the holiday season is over, bring your Christmas trees to the Hatfield Community Park and Pool. You can leave the trees in a designated area and they will get recycled. You can bring your trees as soon as December 26 until the end of January.
