Leaf and Yard Waste Collection

Pennsylvania Law prohibits placing leaves in the trash. Leaves must be composted on site or placed out for separate collection. Your Contracted Waste Hauler is to provide this service to their customers in Towamencin Township.

The Township has an active agreement in place with the Barnside Farm Compost Facility - undertaken by and in conjunction with the Northern Montgomery County Recycling Commission - should residents wish to drop off their yard-waste for a fee.

The Barnside Farm Compost Facility is located at 991 Haldeman Road, Schwenksville, PA 19473. The rate for leaves is $7 per cubic yard, approximately 0.012ยข per pound.

Residents with specific questions may call the facility directly at 610 287-8880.
