Recycling

Curbside Collection

Your trash hauling service also includes the collection of recyclables. Please ask your hauler if they provide receptacles (Doylestown Township does not) and if not, what types are acceptable. Doylestown Township residents are required to recycle: newspaper and other clean paper; aluminum, steel, and bimetal cans; clear, amber, and green glass; #1 and #2 plastics; and yard waste. Each hauler has a different recycling program, with different items collected curbside.  Check with your hauler about what they offer in their recycling program.

Want to learn more about recycling? You’ll find everything you need to know in the Bucks County Planning Commission’s 2008 Guide to Recycling.

Big Green Box Battery Recycling

Our Battery Recycling Program has changed!  We no longer accept regular alkaline batteries for recycling. Please dispose of them in the regular trash.  If you would like to drop off your rechargeable household batteries or cell phone batteries at the Township for recycling, you no longer need to tape them!  They can be delivered just as they are with no tape and no plastic bags.   Please separate any lithium batteries.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 215-348-9915.

Leaf and Yard Waste Recycling

The best thing for the environment is to let your leaves lay, but if you want to clean up your yard and garden in an environmentally friendly way, bring your leaves and yard waste to the Township’s 2014 leaf and yard waste composting site. Removing yard and leaf waste from the Solid Waste Stream is important! This program is open to Doylestown Township residents only.

The Drop off Site is open every third Saturday of the month, March-December from 9 am to 11 am.

What can I bring?

You can bring any leaf and yard waste from your garden. This includes small brush, leaves, sticks and limbs. Please make sure your limbs are small enough that one man can carry them. If you bag your waste to transport it to the program, please be aware we will not be keeping the bags. You can bring your leaves in any container, but we will no longer be shredding biodegradable bags. If you have questions about this program please call 215-348-9915.
