[Trash and Yard Waste] [Residential Recycling] [Commercial and Institutional Recycling] [Household Hazardous Waste] [Stormwater Management]
Under the "Solid Waste Management Act" and the Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Acts" of 1988, Bensalem Township requires that materials be recycled. Since refuse removal in Bensalem is through private haulers, these haulers are required to remove recyclable materials based on the schedule they provide for you when you contract with them for services.

Effective December 17th, Bensalem Township must suspend the Electronic Recycling Program, currently administered at our Public Works Facility. The company that was donating their services for this program is no longer able to coordinate. We are currently in the process of procuring another vendor.
In the meantime, we would appreciate your patience and cooperation. You CANNOT leave your electronics at Public Works before or after hours.
