Recycling Collection

Residents of Hatfield Township are required to recycle clear and colored glass, #1 and #2 plastics, aluminum, and newspapers. Your private hauler is required to pick up these recyclable items, and a free recycling bin is available from the township to all residents. Stop by the Hatfield Township Municipal Building during office hours to receive yours.

Cardboard and Yard Waste Drop-Off

Third Saturday of every month from 8 a.m. to noon

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, located on the corner of Unionville Pike and Richmond Road.

Residents may also drop off moderate portions of yard waste, such as leaves, garden residue, shrubbery, and tree branches (small twigs) monthly as well. Biodegradable brown paper bags, available at the Hatfield Township Municipal Building (4 bags for $1) or at the home improvement or grocery stores.Hatfield Township cannot accept grass clippings at this time. Residents are limited to two trips of branches per Saturday.

Leaf, Branch and Grass Drop-Off

May 14, 2012 - The Lenhart Road Recycling Drop-Off Center is closed until further notice. This regretful action is due to the continual excessive use of individuals as well as illegal dumping by commercial entities. The extensive costs related to address the volume of material necessitated the closure while Hatfield Township considers appropriate mechanisms to reopen the center. Providing a location for township residents to place leaves from their yard and small branches is and will be the goal of the Commissioners and staff, however the use by non-residents and commercial companies have created operational challenges. State recycling grant funds have covered the expenses to date, however extensive staff time averaging over 35 man hours per week and increased depreciation of equipment cannot be sustained. 

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.
