 The Public Work Facilities are closed Saturday, May 23th through Monday, May 25th due to the Memorial Day Holiday.

The Cheltenham Township Public Works Facility is closed to the public; however, public works staff members are working to continue to provide essential services, such as waste management; emergency response; and road, parks, stormwater facility, street light and traffic signal maintenance. Please check back often for important updates with respect to public works operations.

Contactless Biodegradable Leaf Bag Pick Up Available starting May 18, 2020 

Refuse Collection
All trash must be bagged for the safety of our employees and our community. This does not apply to recycling. Recycling materials can remain loose in recycling containers. All trash should be placed in bags that are secured (tied) and then placed in trash containers. Please do not place loose garbage directly in trash containers because it will not be collected. This is for the protection of our workers; we do not want them coming in contact with loose waste products, especially during the COVID-19 outbreak. During the outbreak, it would also be appreciated by our employees if waste receptacles were sanitized with a disinfectant after placing at the curb

Curbside Bulk Item Pick-up
Curbside collections of bulk items are temporarily suspended.
