By Ordinance, Chalfont Borough has a single waste and recycling hauler for all residents. The purpose of this requirement is to reduce the number of large trash trucks traveling the borough streets and the number of days per week that trash is placed curbside. Because of their special needs, businesses are exempt from this requirement, however, small businesses may opt-in to the contract at residential pricing.
The borough has awarded a trash contract to the lowest bidder, our current hauler, Advanced Disposal. (Please note that Lindenfield Townhome and Condo Association, and Pine Creek Condos both contract with a private waste hauler. This resident waste collection information is not applicable to residents at those locations. However, the cardboard dumpster at Public Works is available to all residents.)
Advanced Disposal Customer Service number is 610-440-3700.Bulk Item
